PACE November 2021
The other day, we went to [another organisation’s] training session and came out with nothing. They spoke so fast and didn’t know how to make it relevant to our needs. Instead, you make it meaningful for migrant and multicultural communities. I really love these sessions. It’s only two hours, but you use the time well. I hope this program gets refunded because thousands of migrant women will benefit from this.

Great program I attended. I'm looking forward to the future opportunities of collaboration so that we can link many Nepalese migrant women to the various available services and raise awareness on health issues.

"This has been a fantastic program that has put fire back in my life and I don’t want to lose this motivation to continue doing things for myself. It’s about time I did that."
Multilingual Women’s Health Education Course, July 2021E
The course overall was really great. the reading materials was really helpful. I have gained knowledge from the course and find it really helpful.
Cross cultural training 1
I now understand cultural awareness as a process rather than a ‘competency mentality’ and an understanding that it is a collaborative approach rather than knowing all the right things.
Intersectionality 101 participant
I feel as though my own definition and way of describing intersectionality was very generalised and I have a much deeper understanding of it now.
PACE training participant, July 2019
It has been an amazing journey. I met new friends, discovered a lot about myself, and about Australian politics and health. It's a brilliant course, and really informative for women. Excellent...to bring together everyone onto the same platform.
Multilingual Women’s Health Education Course, July 2021D
Definitely this course has a huge impact in my life. Have learnt so much information and great experience as well. Learning more about women's health is totally amazing and at the same an eye opener, never thought some of the issues I have across during the training are existing and those things should not be ignored.
Multilingual Women’s Health Education Course, July 2021F
The health topics and content focused on women’s which is important and relevant to my role. The learning environment was very encouraging and felt safe to participate. The trainers were very open minded and tried to meet the needs of the participants.
