Safe and Equal @ Work

Safe and Equal @ Work

The Safe and Equal @ Work program will deliver a transformative research program that creates workforce pathways for victim-survivors and drives evidence informed responses to family violence and gender equality statewide.

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.

Research projects

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.
