Domestic Violence and the Workplace – What is the role of Employers and HR Managers?

It is estimated that approximately 800,000 women in Australia, or around one in six female workers, have experienced family or domestic violence. This means that a significant number of Australian workplaces will be impacted by those women’s experiences.

In the lead up to White Ribbon Day 2019, we will be joined by expert panellists for a discussion about the impact of family and domestic violence on workplaces and the critical role that employers and HR professionals can play in making a difference to the safety and wellbeing of victims of domestic violence.

Speaker: Mary Leaker, Manager of the Workplace Equality and Respect Project, SA Equal Opportunity Commission

In her current role, she is leading a whole-of-government initiative to strengthen gender equality and promote safe and respectful workplaces in the prevention of violence against women.

Mary's professional background is in social work and social planning. She has a strong personal commitment to challenging the cultural conditions that give rise to violence against women and has published research on gendered violence against street-based sex workers.

Speaker: Sylvia Powell, General Manager (People and Culture), Eldercare Inc

Sylvia has 30 years in Human Resources, working in the health, education and currently, aged care sectors. In her role Sylvia was instrumental in Eldercare achieving White Ribbon Accreditation and has introduced a number of initiatives across the organisation to support victims of family and domestic violence. Sylvia has also conceptualised a 5-year Employee Engagement program and established a new “Leading Together” program for Executive and Senior Leaders to advance leadership effectiveness.
