DV Work Aware is a new pilot program funded by Queensland Government Department of Communities and operated by Queensland Working Women’s Service (QWWS). The objective of the program is to raise awareness of the proactive and responsive role that workplaces can play in the community and for employees in addressing domestic and family violence.
Over the years, ResearchCrowd has worked with QWWS on various research, evaluation and consulting projects. We are pleased to have been invited to collaborate on the DV Work Aware program to develop information and materials for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees affected by domestic and family violence to help them to Stay Safe – Stay Strong. While much has been written about the scourge of domestic and family violence and its impact on the workplace, Stay Safe – Stay Strong provides practical tips for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander working women who experience domestic and family violence to let them know ‘which way’ to go for help at work. It’s great to be part of this important initiative, and to be working again with QWWS.
