The Purse Project
The Purse Project provides training for people working in the family violence ...
WIRE in collaboration with adaptive leadership specialist Diana Renner has developed a training program for WIRE volunteers to become leaders of change by recognising and challenging the drivers of gendered violence.
Participants learn skills to have safe, respectful and effective conversations with people in their own communities which challenge the condoning of violence against women, promote women’s independence and decision making, challenge gender stereotypes and strengthen positive, respectful and equal relationships. The diverse communities in which WIRE volunteers live, work and play create broad reach for the change conversations with the aim of influencing people in the moveable middle to create new community standards for safety and gender equality, with the ultimate goal of ending gendered violence.
WIRE's Conversation Kit is the first material to come out of the Lead for Change project and includes a guide to having transformative conversations about gender equity, a mythbusters guide and a self-care worksheet.
