National Philanthropy Day

 

This National Philanthropy Day while we recognize and celebrate all who are working towards a common goal of ending VAW and creating economic opportunities for women and girls, there is so much that still needs to be done. WTG’s call to action continues for partnerships.

Today WTG team is celebrating our donors, partners, supporters, volunteers, team members, and friends. Thank you for your support 💕💐  #KindnessMatters 

Make Workplaces Safer For Women

Make workplaces safer for women. Check out the great resource for Employers – Domestic Violence at Work portal

The Domestic Violence at Work portal at University of Western Ontario, was created in partnership with the Government of Canada to help federally-regulated workplaces comply with new legislation (Bill C-65).  Bill C-65 recognizes that domestic violence is life-threatening, and that the workplace can be a life-saving support or haven for someone experiencing violence at home. By law, employers must provide training to all employees and have a domestic violence policy in place.
The Domestic Violence at Work portal houses free tools employers can use to comply with Bill C-65. This includes staff training, a workplace policy maker, and a tool to assess risk if an employee discloses domestic violence.
There has been an increase in reports of domestic violence during the Covid-19 pandemic, so it is urgent that workplaces comply.
