Be a part of a new Project Steering Committee for Our Site Expansion Project.

WWDA is inviting our community of women, girls, feminine identifying, and non-binary people to apply to be part of a new WWDA Project Steering Committee. The Project Steering Committee will play a key role in delivering this new opportunity to expand and continue with the ground-breaking work and development of Our Site, a WWDA website co-designed with over 100 women and girls with disabilities across Australia between 2018 and 2020.

The most critical aim of this new opportunity is to help drive the reduction in violence and the multiple forms of abuse against women and girls, feminine identifying and non-binary people with disabilities and to improve service responses when and where violence and abuse occurs

The Project Steering Committee will provide their important lived expertise in helping us to deliver the Our Site Expansion Project. Project Steering Committee members will have an enthusiasm for co-design and assisting in creating strategies, pathways and opportunities for women and girls to be included in all aspects of this project. No specific experience is required, but we ask for the lived experience of disability and a passion for including and engaging others in co-design.

Important Dates:

Applications Open:              24 June 2022
