About this event

On Friday 10th December 2021, the Employers Domestic Abuse Covenant will hold their inaugural annual conference to mark one year since launching the initiative. Kindly hosted by EDAC Signatory partner Accor, the event will see members, partners, and clients come together to showcase their achievements from the past year, network and call for more organisations to sign the pledge.

Featuring guest speakers from our private and third sector member organisations, as well as Government representatives and a domestic abuse survivor, the conference will also provide an opportunity for members to meet the EDAC team, hear about our impact report and a networking opportunity with EDAC member organisations and supporters.

About EDAC

The Employers Domestic Abuse Covenant (EDAC) is a commitment by businesses to support women affected by abuse to enter or re-enter the workplace. Employers are invited to sign the Covenant and identify sustainable workplace skills and opportunities.

Our members have pledged to raise awareness of domestic abuse within the workplace by encouraging meaningful conversations, enhancing recruitment practices and to encourage other organisations to get involved. Opportunities can include, but is not limited to: workplace skills, job opportunities, mentoring schemes, sector specific courses, internships, work experience, apprenticeships and much more.

The Covenant is included as a formal recommendation in the Domestic Abuse Act 2021 and supported by DWP. We know that more needs to be done to address the economic impact on women, who are disproportionately affected by abuse and that now, more than ever, we all have a role to play to end violence against women.

Taking a partnership approach, we are working with a network of statutory and non statutory services to ensure clients benefit from access to a broad range of support services and skills and have access to a dedicated IDVA/Client Advisor support to empower them on their employability journey.

EDAC provides an opportunity to create positive, long term and sustainable solutions by supporting women affected by abuse. The ultimate aims of this initiative are to harness real and meaningful social change, create inclusive and positive opportunities, develop long term, sustainable solutions for victims/survivors of abuse to to build their confidence, resilience, skills and access to the workplace.
