Portia Development Manager Rachel Black was given the opportunity to speak at the National Collective of Independent Women’s Refuges AGM last month. Rachel has a long history with Women’s Refuge: she spent 15 years working at Marlborough Refuge, eleven of which were as
as manager, so she saw a lot of familiar faces and the AGM was a chance to catch up with many old friends. Refuge clients make up over a quarter of our referrals so it’s important to engage with refuge workers whenever possible.
This was a great chance for Rachel to preserve and further develop the strong relationships we have formed with the collective over the past six years. Rachel’s presentation focused on the transition to the new Portia brand and how we are leading
Portia brand and how we are leading the way in the evolution of law.
The opportunity to hear about the things refuges have been doing and their plans for the future was invaluable, and highlighted the importance of this awesome movement.
