Launch of the ‘Migrant and Refugee Women in Australia Survey’

In partnership with the Harmony Alliance, the Monash Migration and Inclusion Centre is conducting the ‘Migrant and Refugee Women in Australia Survey’. This is a national survey to increase understandings of the issues of importance to women from migrant and refugee backgrounds, with a focus on safety and well-being. Findings from the survey will inform advocacy for migrant and refugee women from their own views and experiences.

The survey is offered in nine languages (Arabic, Thai, Vietnamese, Farsi, Nepali, Simplified Chinese, Korean, Punjabi and English) and is open for a six week period.

We need your support which you may be able to provide in one or both of the following ways.

If you identify as a migrant or refugee woman living in Australia and you are over the age of 18 years, we encourage you to complete the survey via the survey hyperlink and/or scanning the QR code in the image above. The survey should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete, and all responses will remain anonymous. We are pleased to offer all who complete the survey, the chance of winning one of 10 Coles-Myer vouchers to the value of $100.

If you work with an organisation that represents or works with migrant and refugee women, we would appreciate your support to disseminate this survey amongst your networks and community members. You are most welcome to circulate the image above which contains the survey hyperlink and QR code. This can be shared via e-mailout, on social media platforms and any other electronic mode you may use to connect with your networks.
