“This podcast was created to confront this culture of looking away; to sensitize the public and policymakers about how widespread workplace violence against women is and its effects on women and our society. It was created so women could come out and say, ‘Here’s what I’ve faced and I’m tired of facing it.” – Chair, AWB, Nkiru Balonwu.
According to the Program Manager, Inem King “The primary objective of this podcast is to inform the public about the existence and prevalence of workplace violence against women, and detail its adverse effects on women, businesses, societies and economies. It also serves as a springboard for recommendations to relevant stakeholders whose policies, regulations and rules can mitigate this menace.”
The podcast will help stakeholders (women, men, workplaces, regulatory bodies, policymakers, etc.) better understand and tackle violence against women and create policy models that can be applied to workplaces across the continent.
