We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult time for everyone. Employment and financial worries, social isolation and the uncertainty of the pandemic itself have all contributed to high levels of stress in our region and indeed across the world.
National and international research has highlighted that women appear to have experienced particular stresses of the pandemic.
We want to hear from women, cisgender and transgender, and gender non-binary people who live, work or study in Greater Geelong, to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted you. The information you provide will help us to plan recovery efforts beyond COVID-19 that are tailored to the needs of women and gender non-binary people in Greater Geelong.
Your insights will help us understand the many impacts experienced including changes to your mental health and well-being, employment, education, finances, connection with the community and experiences of home and family life.
These impacts may have been negative but you may also have experienced positive aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are keen to understand your experience, whether it has been positive, negative or a mixture of both.
To ensure Council can respond with appropriate, sensitive and adaptable measures, it is critical that we hear from women, cisgender and transgender, and gender non-binary people of all ages, backgrounds and life circumstances.
