How workplace culture can help stamp out domestic violence

UnitingCare Queensland CEO Anne Cross has written an opinion piece on the Conversation about what we can do at work to stop violence in our homes.

Often viewed as a private matter not appropriate for the workplace, Anne recounts the stories of women who has been victimised twice by their co-workers by blaming them for “causing trouble” and bringing their “domestic” problems to work. Indicators included displaying signs of distress or being on the receiving end of spousal stalking. Family violence is no private matter: read the article and discover ways in which you can help stamp out domestic violence by changing workplace culture.

Anyone at risk of family and domestic violence and/or sexual assault can seek help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, either online or by calling 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732).
