Case Study Conversation: Family and Domestic Violence

Lisa Annese and Ryan Burke

Family and domestic violence is a significant challenge in Australia, and its reach into the workplace highlights the need for greater collaborative efforts to address this crisis. Employers can play a crucial role in providing support and protection to victims of abuse.

At this DCA May Case Study Conversation, we spoke with Ryan Burke, Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at CommBank. Ryan shared insights on how CommBank implemented innovative, wide-ranging policies and programs to support employees impacted by Family and Domestic Violence, with a focus on three key areas: support, advocacy and prevention.

The conversation was centered around how CommBank:

•    Identifies the business need for their Family and Domestic Violence policy
•    Communicates their new Family and Domestic Violence policy internally to cultivate a culture of safe reporting 
•    Provides flexible support that is tailored for different groups, and 
•    Continue to evaluate their policies
