Details

Collective Action partnered with the University of Queensland to deliver a gender equality and social inclusion workshop to Australian Award candidates from PNG. The workshop aimed to reduce perceived tensions between PNG and Australian culture and reduce the risk of intimate partner violence. It explored gender equality through the lens of PNG culture and norms to highlight shared values, equipping women and men with the tools to nurture positive, supportive relationships with their spouse, and supporting women to invest in their wellbeing and access support.
