About the Event
Women in Victoria have been hit the hardest by the global pandemic with higher unemployment rates, more responsibility for caregiving, increased risk of domestic violence and significantly poorer mental health outcomes as reported by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Gender inequality and bias that exist in society and in workplaces has been amplified as a result of this global pandemic, putting more strain on the women in our community.
To celebrate International Women’s Day , North Richmond Community Health will be hosting a panel discussion to talk about ‘the challenges women are facing during COVID-19’. The purpose of this panel discussion is to highlight the inequalities that women continue to face in society and to acknowledge the incredible women in our community who have taken the role in supporting North Richmond residents during COVID-19.
The panel discussion will be facilitated by our High Risk Accommodation Response (HRAR) Project Coordinator, Laura O’Shea who will be talking to a diverse group of community workers.
- Dr. Terri Jackson
- Maria Jong
- Martha Monyping
- Wayne Russell
- Vivian Malo
The panel will cover the following topics:
- The biggest challenges women are facing in the North Richmond community
- The incredible work women are doing in our community in response to COVID-19
- Exploring ways on which we can continue to support the women in our community
We hope you can join us for this special and inspiring event!
