Australia’s CEO Challenge is a charity that promotes domestic violence prevention, awareness and partnerships in the workplace and the business sector. ACEOC was formally established in 2002, and since that time we have developed a range of domestic violence initiatives. These include creating tailored awareness and education programs for workplaces, partnering businesses with domestic violence services and policy development and education for relevant managerial staff to drive a workplace culture that says no to domestic violence.
Our training is customized to each workplace taking into account relevant factors including staff diversity, current policies, realistic options (when responding to disclosures) and local referral pathways. We work with you to take our industry leading training into your workplace to make a real difference on the ground for staff. As a part of customization we can also help your organisation to develop a policy based on best practice, industry leading standards which enable staff to get support when they are most vulnerable.
Coming from the business and community services sector our staff are well aware of the limited services available to families going through these challenging experiences which is why we establish partnerships between the business sector and domestic violence services. Through these valuable partnerships a business may be able to provide much needed support to a domestic violence service. In turn, through providing opportunities for staff participation, the service may raise awareness in a workplace of the issue and promote prevention. This creates a mutually beneficial relationship where businesses and domestic violence services support each other in preventing domestic violence in our communities.
Since 2002, a large number of businesses have worked with Australia’s CEO Challenge and the momentum is growing!
