MinterEllison, established in 1827, is now one of the largest full-service law firms in the Asia Pacific region. As one of Australia's leading law firms, MinterEllison has a long history providing the breadth of legal and professional services that are expected by Australia's major corporate and government organisations, listed and unlisted.
MinterEllison became involved with Challenge DV in the early stages of developing its Community Investment Program in Brisbane in 2000/2001. By helping Challenge DV run its business we felt that we could make a significant impact in addressing domestic and family violence which, back then, not many were even talking about. We could clearly see the opportunity to involve all our staff at all levels and a holistic utilisation of our resources. The partnership has continued to flourish because it is relationship based and therefore capable of adapting to the organisation's growth and the changing landscape around domestic and family violence awareness.
MinterEllison’s partnership with Challenge DV includes :
- Provision of office space and administrative support
- Pro bono legal support
- Representation on the Board
- Hosting events (venue and catering)
- Christmas goods drives supporting refuges connected with Challenge DV
- Founded and helped to develop the Darkness To Daylight Challenge and continue to provide logistic support as well as participating every year
2019 marks the fourth year 97.3FM has proudly supported the Darkness to Daylight Challenge. Here at 97.3FM, we are passionate about raising awareness of the effects of Domestic and Family Violence within our community, workplaces and homes. Our hope, is that our involvement creates a platform for Darkness to Daylight’s message to reach our listeners, encouraging them to participate in the challenge and donate to raise funds for those affected by this tragic epidemic. It has been such a pleasure to watch the participation in the challenge increase over the past four years and we hope that one day, we help to end Domestic and Family Violence for good.
The current prevalence of domestic and family violence in the Australian community requires multiple levels of leadership. Network 10 believes all workplaces have a part to play in reducing domestic and family violence and is committed to the ongoing development of a support framework for its employees. Network10 is also committed to raising awareness of domestic and family violence both internally and externally through support from Senior Executives, On-Air Talent Ambassadors, the production and broadcast of Community Service Announcements and supporting events that raise awareness of the issue.
