eSafety for Women and Girls


Wednesday, 2 November 2016


The Zonta Club of Geelong was proud to be part of the Barwon Month of Action with a very special, and relevant, event.

Greg Gebhart, a senior trainer from the Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner, gave an extremely interesting, and enlightening, presentation on the risks inherent in cyber-space and ways in which we can protect ourselves and our families. Greg Gebhart at Zonta Presentation

Did you realise that location tools, built into most mobile devices, can be used to track your habits? Greg taught us about the basics of numerous features such as this, and advice on how to use such tools - or turn them off.

A fascinating presentation - much appreciated by all who attended - so much so that we are looking at the possibility of a repeat presentation next year.

There are numerous tips, hints and alerts available on the esafety.gov.au website - and the Zonta Club of Geelong is pleased to support the work of Greg and his colleagues at the Office of the Children's eSafety Commissioner.

Check out what the Commission does, the services on offer for children, and women, at https://esafety.gov.au/.

Zonta Says No


“Zonta Says NO to Violence against Women” is a Zonta International campaign to raise awareness of  the issue and increase actions to end violence against women and girls around the world. The campaign, which began in November 2012, features the service and advocacy actions of Zonta clubs and districts to prevent and end violence against women and girls in their local communities.
It also highlights Zonta International’s ongoing efforts to end violence against women and girls through the Zonta International Strategies to End Violence against Women (ZISVAW) program and through Zonta’s partnerships with the United Nations and its agencies.
