UN Women launches toolkit for employers and HR leaders in managing domestic violence during COVID-19

Health Industry Hub | July 20, 2020 |

The global pandemic of COVID-19 has seen a deadly shadow pandemic emerge. Whilst domestic violence is on a terrifying upward trajectory during this time, physical or sexual violence is already experienced by 1 in 3 women worldwide. This means that any company’s leadership team and staff likely include women who are suffering from domestic abuse.

At such a critical time for women, urgent action is needed. Many employers and businesses are rightfully investing time and resources to support their employees in need. UN Women has developed additional tools for businesses and employers designed to shine a light on this shadow pandemic and provide clear advice on key measures that can be taken at all levels within the organisation.

Download the Shadow Pandemic Business Toolkit below – the support tools for your business in managing domestic violence during COVID-19.
