New symposium series – Solidarity: Safety, Justice, Wellbeing

WorkUP Queensland is excited to announce our 2022 Symposium Series ‘Solidarity: Safety, Justice, Wellbeing’.

The series follows last year’s highly successful ‘Daring, Inclusive, Feminist Leadership’ series, in understanding how different services can better work together to create meaningful change in ending violence against women.

Last year, participants told us they valued allyship within and across the sector and viewed this as a powerful mechanism for change, reporting that the symposium series was a fun and practical way to connect.

This year’s symposiums will include keynote speakers, practitioners, and academics sharing evidence and experience in integrated and collaborative service delivery, within and across sectors.

WorkUP Queensland will facilitate peer group learning experiences, which will dive deeper into key topics and provide a forum for creative thinking and brainstorming about implementation opportunities.

Facilitated by Jan Archer of Archersfield Management and Consulting, the series will combine practical wisdom, emerging evidence, and outside thinking, all with the aim of reducing friction and frustration within the system, for the benefit of service users and the workforce itself.

Aligning with Principle Seven of the Domestic and Family Violence Services Practice Principles standards and guidance – ‘Services collaborate to provide an integrated response’ – this series is designed for specialist and mainstream services and will be particularly useful for those in leadership or decision-making roles.

Download the brochure here, or register to attend one or more symposiums and peer groups here, noting that if you would like to participate in the peer groups, you will need to attend all symposiums.

When you register for peer groups, WorkUP Queensland will send you a few questions so we can design the right structure to meet your needs, such as when you would like to meet and what you would like to gain from participation.

We will be releasing more details about speakers throughout the year. Subscribe to our newsletter below for the latest news, or contact to learn more.
