Only through talking about experiences of sexual violence and bringing the discussion out of the darkness, can real change and progress be made. It is time now for the discussion to include the voices of Australia’s Veteran Community. For far too long, the reality of the lived experience of veteran victim-survivors has been neglected as part of the discussion of sexual violence in Australia. The movement has begun and it is now time to hear from victim-survivors who, historically have been silenced, not only by the Defence Force systems, but out of fear.
In creating The Athena Project, our Founder and Director, Jordyn has leveraged her passion for advocacy together with the power of story-telling to address the inequalities experienced by Australia’s veteran victim-survivors. Through her studies in Gender, Peace and Security Jordyn has grown her skills to allow her to offer services of consulting, speaking and tutorials on a range of subjects for corporate, government and not-for-profit organisations.
The Athena Project offers the opportunity for storytelling through Keynote Speaking engagements as well as Bespoke Consulting arrangements for a myriad of matters, including but not limited to; lived experiences of sexual violence, victim-centric approaches, the feminine experience of military service, leadership, cultural transformations, social impact and corporate social responsibility.
