Excited to be sharing updates from our Challenge: What role can business play in tackling gender-based violence? 👉 A new global law has been agreed at the International Labour Organisation which means that for the first time all governments and employers will be obliged to take action to prevent and respond to violence and harassment in the workplace. 👉 We had a brilliant session as part of #BFPOXFORD, thanks to panellists from Unilever, Vodafone UK, CARE, IFC - International Finance Corporation and International Labour Organization! 👉 We wanted to share the main findings with you from an online survey about GBV in the workplace. These insights will be included in our final report - due for publication at the Business Fights Poverty New York event this September. ➡️ Over 80% of respondents agreed business has a strong role to play in tackling GBV ➡️ 67% feel companies have a responsibility to address GBV in workplaces and in the wider community ➡️ 43% think that current measures being taken in their workplace to address GBV are effective whilst 38% are unsure. ➡️ 54% think social norms are the biggest barrier to addressing GBV closely followed by 48% thinking a lack of senior level commitment is a major barrier.

Join the Online Discussion with Vittorio Cerulli taking place live from #BFPOXFORD to explore thought-provoking topics linked to purpose and use examples from leading companies across industries. #BFPOXFORD #purposefullyRead More
