Voices of Women
In 2018, 75 women attended nine "Women in Government" workshops which explained the infrastructure of local government and the roles of elected officials. The goal being to support more women to run for election to Yarra Ranges Council in 2020, and to become community partners in leadership.
In 2019, Yarra Ranges Council, CIRE, VLGA and Voices of Women will organise a range of workshops to assist potential candidates to build their understanding of local governance and the role of being a councillor. Eastern Health has also supported the initiative in its early stages as part of promoting gender equity to prevent violence against women in Yarra Ranges.
Proudly supporting Together for Equality and Respect Partnership (TFER)
