Ask Izzy webinar and workshops: taking control online
As part of our Ask Izzy Help at Hand family violence project funded by the NAB Foundation, we're working with communities, organisations and people experiencing violence to increase their understanding about e-safety and how to use Ask Izzy to find support.
We'll be running a number of events across the country over the next few months and will publish them here. To keep in the loop, you can also follow us on Facebook and subscribe to our quarterly newsletter.
Friday 21 Jun, 2019, 11:00am - 12:00pm AEST
In this webinar you’ll hear from family and domestic violence experts on their recent work to support people experiencing family violence through technology. The webinar will also include a discussion on how they are collaborating in the sector, what challenges they’re facing and the part technology plays.
Featuring lightning talks from:
- Helena Bates from Infoxchange – outlining the recent changes to Ask Izzy and best practices
- Karen Bentley from WESNET – showcase resources and services available
- Rosalie O’Neale from Office of the eSafety Commissioner – technology abuse training
- Liz Ratcliffe from Domestic Violence Resource Centre – overview of the ARC App
- Kate Mecham from Domestic Violence Victoria – recent developments
In June and July 2019 we'll be running free workshops in partnership with the eSafety Commissioner. The workshops will cover:
- Technology-facilitated abuse, harassment and intimidation, privacy and online security settings
- Resources available to support people experiencing technology-facilitated abuse and family violence
- Ask Izzy's family violence features and best practice for using Ask Izzy to support people in need
Anyone is welcome to attend, but these events will be best suited to family violence service providers.
