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.
