About this event
Do you want to increase the diversity of skills and experience in your workplace? Do you want your workplace to be an employer of choice for victim-survivors of family violence, helping to rebuild their lives and gain financial wellbeing? Then this panel session is for you!
Victim-survivors of family violence come from a diverse range of backgrounds and lived experiences, with a wide range of skills to offer. Access to sustainable employment is a vital step in their recovery journey, allowing victim-survivors to earn an income and build their financial wellbeing. However, many recruitment and workplace practices can unknowingly create barriers to victim-survivors’ access to employment, especially for those from migrant backgrounds.
inTouch and WIRE invite you to explore how workplaces can remove the barriers to employment for victim-survivors of family violence. Join us for a free online panel discussion and hear from the following presenters:
Laura Cremen will share learnings from the inSpire program—an inTouch initiative that provides tailored support, partnerships and mentoring, assisting women in their journey towards economic independence.
Elyse McInerney will share key learnings from the Sustainable and Transformative Employment Pathways (STEP), a program run by WIRE that assists victim-survivors of family violence in their journey to financial wellbeing. STEP provides victim-survivors with the skills, knowledge and support to seek employment. The program also guides workplaces on how to improve their accessibility and support for victim-survivors.
Payal Tiwari will share her own knowledge and experience, providing an insight into the realities of job-seeking as a migrant woman in Australia.
