Vanessa Born

Vanessa Born is the Media Projects Manager at Domestic Violence Victoria, the peak body for Victorian family violence services. Since 2010, Vanessa has led a suite of projects that focus on prevention of violence against women (PVAW) with news and social media. These projects focus on engaging media, community leaders and spokespersons to improve news media reporting of this issue, and to impact positive social change in community understanding, awareness and action. 


Projects include the previous Eliminating Violence Against Women Media Awards (The EVAs), a cross-sector advisory committee on media and prevention, and the implementation of the recently released Media Framework for this work.
