Family and Domestic Violence Training for the Workplace

Within the population of women who have experienced violence, or are currently experiencing violence, the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates that between 55% and 70% are currently in the workforce – that is, approximately 800,000 women, or around one in six female workers.

This means that a significant number of Australian workplaces will be impacted by women’s experiences of domestic and family violence
