The Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, speaking at the National Summit on Reducing Violence against Women and their Children.
The Third Action Plan of the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children 2010–2022 was launched at a national summit held in Brisbane in October 2016. PM&C worked with the Department of Social Services, which has policy ownership of the Third Action Plan, and the Queensland Government which co-hosted the summit.
Policy discussions were assisted using a digital engagement tool that allowed summit participants to submit questions and share views and experiences through the online platform. The technology coordinated policy development on how to address violence against women. The online platform made it possible for non-attendees to view presentations in real-time and after the summit. Summit content was shared on social media via live streaming and a website that generated 1,500 tweets from 673 individual Twitter contributors with an audience of 2.9 million. The webstream was accessed 1,010 times and 2,748 people visited the website, including 128 online submissions to the summit.
