Starts With Us

Starts With Us

Starts With Us is a project that aims to support and encourage Victorian legal and justice professionals and organisations to take action to prevent violence against women.

The project is for everyone working in legal and justice – lawyers, judges, administrative staff, paralegals, policy advisers, legal educators, court staff and more.

The project has four distinct phases: 1) sector research on sexism and gender inequality; 2) a forum, attended by legal and justice sector leaders, to discuss the research and commit to action; 3) action planning by the sector to remedy sexism and gender inequality in legal and justice workplaces; 4) sector-wide implementation of the action plan.

Starts With Us is funded by the Victorian Government as part of the Free From Violence strategy and is part of a state-wide coordinated effort to prevent violence against women.
