National Conference and Project on Domestic Violence for Employers and Employee Assistance Program Providers
Domestic violence has a significant impact on the workplace. Many employers are addressing domestic violence in their workplace, and there may be opportunities to build on existing efforts, especially through Employee Assistance Programs.
The S2 - Safer, Smarter Workplace
conference was the first national conference convening employers and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) providers to leverage their work preventing and responding to domestic violence and its impact on the workplace. The Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence hosted this national conference November 6-7, 2008, in San Francisco, California.
In addition CAEPV has hosted ongoing webinars to continue the dialogue and build capacity for employers and EAP providers.
The S2 - Safer, Smarter Workplace conference and project is presented by the Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence. This project is made possible by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation with additional support provided by The Allstate Foundation, the Blue Shield of California Foundation, California Coalition Against Sexual Assault, Health Care Service Corporation and Texas Health Resources.
The Technology Sponsor for the S2 - Safer, Smarter Workplace conference was the Verizon Foundation.
The project planning workgroup includes representatives from the following organizations: Chestnut Global Partners; CIGNA; Gap Inc; Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; Macy's West; Magellan Health Services; OptumHealth Behavioral Solutions.
