Workplace Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Conference 2022

May 27, 2022

At the inaugural Diversity Works conference, DVFREE Lead Holly Carrington spoke on a panel about what employers can and should be doing to respond to domestic violence in the workplace. The panel also featured Sirr Christoffersen from DVFREE Tick partner Auckland Transport, and Jacki Clark from The Aunties.

Sirr spoke about DVFREE guidance and training for Auckland Transport’s domestic violence workplace programme, and gave some compelling examples of how this has made a difference, while Jacki spoke about how much DVFREE is needed so that manager and co-workers are better prepared to provide a safe and empathetic response to employees who are impacted as well as practical support.
