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.
