Violence Prevention

Here at WHEQ, we are committed to ending violence through our primary prevention projects and alliances. Primary prevention requires identifying, challenging and changing social conditions and conventions, such as gender inequality. Our programs aim to tackle these issues from the root through this primary prevention tactic, and form professional alliances who are committed to this change.

Equal and Together Alliance

The Equal and Together Alliance is a partnership of organisations, businesses, clubs and networks that are working across Queensland to build respect and equity within their workplaces and communities. The Alliance maintains the shared principle that preventing violence against women requires us to work together. 

Members can undertake an equity audit and be supported to implement strategies that promote equity within their business or organisation. Members also have access to a range of professional education programs to enhance equity and respect in their team or workplace. Alliance members can publicly promote their commitment to equity across diverse spaces and advertising platforms. 

Alliance members are also invited to participate in Primary Prevention Community of Practice. This supports local whole of community, place-based approaches to the prevention of violence.
