April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This is a valuable time to remind your employees of the pervasiveness of sexual violence and the measures they can take to prevent and address it in your organization. Sexual assault and harassment impact people of all genders, sexual orientations, races, professions, and ages. According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), one in two women and one in five men will experience some form of violent sexual contact in their lifetime. Unfortunately, sexual assault and related crimes like sexual harassment and rape are often not reported.
As a result of the pandemic, some employees may be living at home with an abuser and at a higher risk for sexual violence, while others may be grappling with prior trauma. Additionally, as employees increasingly rely on online operations and communication channels, including social media platforms, they may face online harassment. LiveSafe is here to help.
