Violence Against Women Foundation Gains World Expert
Monday, 3rd February 2014 at 10:05 am

A world-leading violence prevention expert who has worked with organisations including UN Women and Amnesty International Australia has been appointed as the Director of Policy and Evaluation of the Foundation to Prevent Violence against Women and their Children.

CEO of the national Foundation to Prevent Violence against Women and their Children, Paul Linossier, said the foundation had appointed world-leading expert in the field of primary prevention, Dr Lara Fergus, to the role of Director Policy and Evaluation.

“Dr Fergus has an impressive record in the area of primary prevention of violence against women,” Linossier said.

“Most recently she has been consulting on projects in Europe, the Asia-Pacific region and Australia.

“Dr Fergus’ expertise and experience in policy development, research and evaluation in preventing violence against women has been honed over a decade and a half of working with organisations such as UN Women, Amnesty International Australia, White Ribbon and VicHealth, as well as leading key women’s policy initiatives in the Victorian Government.”

Linossier said Dr Fergus’ public policy experience and ongoing commitment to improving the lives of women in Australia and internationally made her the ideal addition to the Foundation’s leadership team.

The Foundation to Prevent Violence against Women and their children is an independent, Not for Profit organisation working to raise awareness and engage the community in action to prevent violence against women and their children.

Its board is led by Chair Natasha Stott Despoja AM, Australia’s Ambassador for Women and Girls.
