Our Watch is a national, independent not for profit organisation established in 2013 to drive nationwide change in the culture, behaviours and attitudes that lead to violence against women and their children. Our vision is an Australia where women and their children live free from all forms of violence. Our mandate is to stop violence before it happens, and our purpose is to provide national leadership within the principles of becoming a national backbone organisation to prevent all forms of violence against women and their children.

Our Watch has a strong evidence-based culture and as leader your role is to continue to monitor and nurture this culture, whilst also building external partnership opportunities that keep Our Watch at the forefront of issues relating to the drivers of violence against women and their children.
