Elise Phillips – Interim CEO

We can’t wait to see you at the 2022 DVNSW conference. It has been an extremely tough two years for the domestic and family violence sector, with increased demand for our already stretched services amidst the pandemic. We are grateful to each and every one of you for your hard work, hanging in there, and continuing to provide vital services in challenging circumstances. When consulted on the format of this year’s conference, you, our members, gave us resounding feedback that you wanted to come together for a face-to-face event. We will meet on the Gadigal land of the Eora Nation, for the first time in over two years.

Our theme is Reconnect, Re-Energise and Redesign. You will re-connect with your colleagues from across the State and make new connections. You will be re-energised as you listen to our diverse range of speakers and panellists, who will inspire, challenge and engage us in robust conversations. We will celebrate our work, listen to marginalised voices and reflect on what we can collectively do to redesign the system to create real and positive change. You will notice that many of the priorities in DVNSW’s Strategic Plan 2021-2024 feature heavily in our program including primary prevention, children and young people as victim-survivors in their own right and advocating for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander as well as Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities to live safely and free from gendered violence. We invite you to take a closer look at the program and speaker bios in anticipation for the event.
