Suzanne Marlow, Board Member of Australia’s CEO Challenge shares what it means to her to be involved with the governance of an organisation that works towards domestic and family violence prevention:
Domestic and family violence tears apart the safety and security that kids and adults are entitled to have in their homes. The good news is that the culture that has allowed this issue to remain behind closed doors is changing, and everyone can help this happen. Workplaces are a key avenue for this culture change, as places of support and security for victims, and places where new cultural norms take root. ACEOC uses the power of corporate and personal leadership to open minds and hearts to the issue on a daily basis. It is a privilege to serve an organisation that has been taking initiative and developing innovative approaches to culture change in this field for many years, and is now gaining greater recognition for the importance of this work.
