Domestic abuse and the workplace: making a stand
January 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Event led by Speak Out Revolution in collaboration with WiN Central England.
In this talk, Rajinder Pryor discusses #domesticabuse. More and more organisations recognise that they need to provide both physical and emotional safety for women and their colleagues in the workplace due to the impact of domestic abuse. A heightened level of awareness has raised this issue to the forefront – due to the pandemic domestic violence increased globally with many women finding themselves trapped in their own homes due to lockdown. This session will explore the impact of domestic abuse and how increasingly organisations are making a stand.
Rajinder Pryor is a committed Diversity and Inclusion champion alongside her role as Engagement Lead within Network Rail. She is actively involved in a number of networks within the rail industry. 2018 was a memorable year for Rajinder as she was awarded Women in Rail’s Inspirational Woman of the Year and invited to a Royal Garden party in recognition of her endeavours. Her passion is coupled with a strong voice to drive change as she openly speaks about the sensitive topics of honour and domestic abuse to raise greater awareness, most recently featured in October edition of Rail Director magazine. Supporting Network Rail’s recent partnership with White Ribbon UK she is keen to engage more men to make a stand to prevent violence against women.
This event welcomes attendees from all genders and all organisations.
