FY18 Sustainability Report Transurban 27
Diversity, inclusion and wellbeing
Domestic violence awareness Transurban’s Domestic Violence Support Policy gives affected employees access to: • domestic violence leave entitlements • counselling services • flexible working options to give the employee time to manage legal matters, make alternate housing arrangements, arrange childcare and attend relevant appointments. As well as providing formal support for employees experiencing domestic violence, our policy also advocates for a working environment modelling non-violent and respectful working relationships. Australia’s CEO Challenge is a non- profit organisation that partners with workplaces to train employees in domestic violence awareness. During FY18, we hosted domestic violence awareness training at our Australian offices. The training was designed to give our employees the tools necessary to recognise domestic violence, to respond effectively and to refer appropriately. The training will empower our employees to help each other if needed, as well as friends or family members who are affected by domestic violence. Domestic violence awareness training
The lights on Brisbane's Sir Leo Hielscher Bridges and Melbourne’s Bolte Bridge were coloured orange as part of the United Nation’s 16 days of activism against gender-based violence campaign. The ‘Orange the world’ campaign aims to raise awareness about violence against women and mobilise people to bring about change. The campaign commenced on 25 November 2017, with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and buildings across the globe were illuminated in orange to share the message.
During FY18 we also: • conducted domestic violence support training for employees • provided Brisbane children living in independent refuges with backpacks in time for the new school year • supported White Ribbon Day, a national campaign to prevent men’s violence against women.
