Growing up with family violence, Jacqui says it was in the stars that she ended up leading the largest peak body in Australia for organisations and individuals who work with men to end family violence.
Over her eight years as CEO of No to Violence, Jacqui saw the organisation grow from a team of 20 in Melbourne to more than 90 staff across five states. No to Violence offer a Men’s Referral Service and is the central point of contact for men taking responsibility for their violent behaviour. They also work with the family violence sector and governments to develop and advocate for best practice policy in stopping men’s use of family violence, as well as providing training and workforce development for sector workers.
(Since this episode was recorded, Jacqui has stepped down as CEO from No to Violence).
Thank you Jacqui for an interesting and insightful chat.
