Hayley is the Chief Executive Officer of Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia. Hayley has over 19 years’ experience in the community and justice sectors, principally in the areas of domestic and family violence policy, practice and law reform. Hayley is passionate about evidence to action and social justice reform.
Following 10-15 minute talks by Kittu and Hayley, we will have questions and discussion. Both Kittu and Hayley are very knowledgeable and engaging speakers and the discussion is certain to be inspiring and informative.
This panel discussion is available to all members of the community so please feel free to invite any others you may feel be interested in what is bound to be an engaging discussion.
Please do join us!
