Domestic violence can have a tremendous impact on victims and their place of business. In fact, victims lose a total of 8 million days of paid work each year, and the cost exceeds $8.3 billion per year, according to NCADV.
This is why Aspirant hosted a Corporate Champions Against Domestic Abuse event with Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh (WC&S) on Thursday, June 27. At the event, attendees learned more about the overall cause, the RUSafe app we developed for WC&S, how other companies are getting involved in this space, and most importantly, how they can help their own organization champion efforts to keep employees safe from harm.
If you’d like to see a recap of the event and interviews with our speakers, including the Pittsburgh Mayor's Office, Burson Cohn & Wolfe, and Koppers, Inc., watch the video below.
In late 2017, Aspirant began its journey to raise awareness of and help prevent domestic abuse through our newly announced campaign, “A Connection of Hope,” by holding an interactive session with key business and community leaders in the Pittsburgh region. The following video highlights key takeaways from the session, including our strategy and tactics for 2018, and how you can get involved.
