November 26, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm AEDT

Register HERE

Workplaces can be important places to provide support and resources to people experiencing domestic and family violence (DFV).

However, introducing policies and equipping employees with the knowledge and skills to provide this support, and most critically understand their limitations, is also incredibly important.

Join subject matter expert and Director of Counterpoint Advisory, Dr Katie Lamb for an interactive session role playing true to life workplace scenarios you can learn from. Katie has specific expertise delivering customised training for workplaces wanting to support employees experiencing family violence; and will raise some of the issues that regularly arise when she is training which we will discuss in breakout rooms.

Delivered in partnership with Serious Woo, our webinar highlights the implications organisations must consider when supporting all employees impacted by DFV violence including:

knowing how to safely engage with an employee who is using violence in the home
ensuring your actions do not increase risk to a victim of family violence
logistical implications of family violence leave
If you are a leader we encourage you to bring your team to this event in order to share this information and advice as widely as possible within your organisation.

Date: Thursday 26 November 2020
Time: 2 PM – 3 PM (AEDT)
Platform: Zoom
Hosted by: NAWO NSW & VIC Committees
Complimentary for NAWO members & Non members

We encourage you to submit questions ahead of the webinar via events@nawo.org.au, – all questions are great questions and it is likely that what is of interest to you is interest to others.
