Safe and Equal @ Work
About the program
The Safe and Equal @ Work program will inform and develop workforce pathways, training supports and job creation for family violence victim-survivors. We will enhance safety, help address women’s financial insecurity and gender inequalities in the workplace and produce economic benefits through greater workforce participation.
The Safe and Equal @ Work program recognises that:
- Family violence can take women out of the Victorian workforce,
- Family violence can impact the degree of their contribution when in the workforce, and
- Family violence can prevent women from entering the workforce.
The Safe and Equal @ Work program will create 24 Graduate Certificate of Family Violence Prevention scholarships for people with lived experience, PhD and post doctoral research scholarships, research associate and professional roles. These opportunities will be announced soon.
