Shelley Hewson-Munro

Teaching-focused academic and Project Manager, Project Momentum - Victoria University & HealthWest Partnership


Professional Bio

Over the last 14 years Shelley has worked and co-designed programs and projects across all levels of violence response around Australia, including one of the first Aboriginal-owned and Aboriginal-designed Respectful Relationships initiatives in the central desert of Western Australia. She has also facilitated men’s behaviour change and fathering without violence sessions, and provided partner contact, trauma and family violence counselling to victims and survivors, boys, adolescents and men who use violence.

Shelley is passionate about grassroots, strength-based and accountable activation and from 2018 to the end of 2020 managed the Working Together with Men initiative and Project Momentum for HealthWest Partnership, the latter of which, after piloting several concepts, created a national-first resource that aims to inspire practitioners and provide a suggested model of response to activate grassroots men in accountable violence prevention efforts for their communities. Shelley is also currently working on two gender justice research projects with Dr Amanda Keddie and Dr Michael Flood for Deakin University.
