Challenge gender norms and sexist behaviours by letting people know these behaviours are not acceptable to you
Find out whether your workplace or organization has developed a framework to address family violence as over half of those reporting domestic violence indicated at least one abusive incident occurred at or near the workplace.
Hold an event raising awareness of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25 November).
