November 25th 2020 was the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, also known as White Ribbon Day. From that day, until Human Rights Day on 10th December, it was the 16 Days of Action.
The theme this year focused on ending gender-based violence in the workplace. Companies can do more to support their employees who are experiencing domestic violence and give staff the training they need to spot the signs.
That’s why, throughout the 16 Days of Action, we took this conversation online, releasing a new blog for each of the 16 days.
Please check them out below and spread the word to help us end violence against women.
