In this three-hour, interactive virtual workshop, delivered by Multicultural Australia staff with practice experience, you will have the chance to build awareness and empathy with women from refugee and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds experiencing domestic and family violence (DFV).

This workshop aims to increase participants’ awareness of:

  • The cultural and linguistic diversity in Queensland including plurality of values, attitudes and beliefs within multicultural communities.
  • Where and how to access reliable statistical data about cultural diversity and compare Local Government Area data to Queensland-wide data.
  • The range of settlement experiences and their impacts for refugee and CALD women.
  • The intersectional challenges and barriers to accessing services and supports, relating to refugee and CALD women experiencing DFV.
  • Practical strategies to communicate across cultures and reduce biases, to provide an empathetic and supportive response to refugee and CALD women who may be experiencing DFV.

Survivor stories and perspectives are centred through videos and case studies.
