Domestic Abuse: International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women
The World Health Organisation estimates 25% of women aged 15-49 years old who have been in a relationship, have suffered physical violence from their partner. This domestic abuse can result in mental and physical health consequences for women, and can even sometimes be fatal. It can also affect the wellbeing of those around, such as children and other family members. Domestic abuse can describe physical and non physical events, such as coercion, manipulation, gaslighting, threating, controlling, and many other behaviours. Domestic abuse does not apply apply to partners and perpetrators of domestic abuse can be any other family member or close relationship. The Crime Survey for England and Wales estimated in 2020 that 2/3 of people experiencing domestic abuse were women.
November 25th is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and in this webinar we will address how domestic abuse doesn’t just remain at home, and as employers, we have a responsibility to support our colleagues. Their experience can also impact the workplace, performance, absence, job security and other individuals in the organisation.

Eliminating the Pay Gap
Pay gaps are indicators of embedded and systemic diversity and inclusion problems within organisations and many employers are now taking significant steps to identify and address the causes of the gaps.
Some are motivated to act by the requirements for transparency (in relation to gender), but others see pay gap data as an important inclusion indicator that must be tackled if they are to achieve an inclusive and diverse workplace.
International Women’s Day: Exploring the opportunities and challenges of progress within traditional gender roles post COVID
Traditional gender roles in western society have been changing over the last 100 years. There are times when great strides have been made, and others where progress feels like a slow evolution. There are also times progress has been eroded. In this session we will explore the changing gender roles and look specifically at the impact of COVID. We will discuss the challenges, the opportunities and give practical advice for employers on how to use this period as one of growth and transformation for gendered roles at work and in society.
