Supporting Victims of Gender-Based Violence in the Workplace

Whats Working, What’s Needed

You’ve heard that the personal is political, but have you considered that the personal is also professional? The UN estimates that gender-based violence is experienced by 1 in 3 women worldwide, and that experience affects our places of work. In this session, Indrani Goradia will lead a delicate discussion about the impacts and burdens of gender-based violence, and what colleagues and organizations can do to help. Indrani Goradia is the Founder of Raft Cares, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to improving the level of care for domestic violence survivors.
