Join us for a conversation about how community services workplaces can better respond to employees experiencing domestic and family violence.

CSIA along with our partners Basic Rights Queensland and WorkHaven have been working with Industry to bridge the gap between organisational intent and the complexity of employees’ experiences.

This phase of our work has focused on intersectionality and addressing the stigma of community services workers which prevents them seeking DFV support in their workplace.

Join us for a discussion about how the Community Services Industry can be a leader when it comes to workplace responses to DFV.

  • Discover the key learnings from conversations with First Nations and culturally and linguistically diverse people when addressing DFV
  • Hear from Basic Rights Queensland and WorkHaven about best practice in developing or improving workplace responses
  • Discuss with our experts how Industry can move from DFV policies and procedures to a more holistic workplace strategy
  • Walk away with ideas you can implement today in your workplace approach.

There will be an opportunity for you to share examples of what works, what doesn’t and what we can do better as an Industry to create cultural safety and reduce stigma for community services workers.

We understand that this topic may be difficult to talk about if you have lived experience or are close to someone who has lived experience. After the event, if you would like to discuss anything further or if you would like to debrief about any of the discussion, CSIA is here to support you. Please call, email or message and we will respond immediately and confidentially.

The Domestic and Family Violence in the workplace project is funded by the Queensland Government’s Investing in Queensland Women program.
