DCA's Anna McPhee Memorial Oration

24th May 2022. Reading Time: 1 minutes General. 710 page views.

This year’s Oration will be delivered by Jess Hill, Walkley-award winning investigative journalist, author and winner of the 2020 Stella Prize for her book ‘See What You Made Me Do’ that was adapted into an SBS TV series. Family and domestic abuse and violence is a national emergency.

Family and domestic abuse and violence is a national emergency: one in four Australian women has experienced abuse or violence from a man she was intimate with. But why does domestic abuse persist? Why do people become abusive? What can we do to prevent it? And what role can workplaces play in addressing the problem? Jess Hill will explore the fine lines between love, abuse and power and the systems that enable perpetrators. 
Our emcee and DCA Chair Ming Long AM will then join Jess on stage with an impressive line-up of guest speakers, to further the conversation:

Sian Lewis, Group Executive Human Resources, Commonwealth Bank,
David Nugent, Psychotherapist – Men’s Behaviour Family Violence Specialist, Heavy M.E.T.A.L Group, and
Professor, Dr Marcia Langton AO, The University of Melbourne.
