Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) is continuing to work closely with women and girls with disability across the country to develop the new Virtual Centre website.
In July 2019 WWDA conducted six co-design workshops across the country. The purpose of the workshops was to gain first-hand feedback from women with disability on the content and design of the Virtual Centre. In total, 45 women participated in workshops held in six different locations.
The final report for these workshops is now available. This document provides a thorough description of the workshop process and summarises all of the key findings.
The workshop experience showed us that a guiding principle for the Virtual Centre should be that women with disability see themselves reflected in it. A website that equips and resources women with disability, empowers them to realise their human rights and reflects and celebrates their diverse stories is an important and achievable goal.
We are continuing to engage women with disability and other stakeholders in the development of the Virtual Centre.
If you would like to be involved in trying out the website in late November, please let us know by emailing the team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, stay tuned for the launch of the Virtual Centre in early 2020.
