On 25 November, the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the Group reaffirms its commitment to combating violence against women. We need to remember that one in three women in the world has been, is, or will be a victim of physical and/or sexual violence during her lifetime, most often committed by her spouse or former spouse. This violence has serious consequences for the mental and physical health of the victims and has a direct impact on their work and career path.
The company: an ideal forum for acting against domestic violence
Poster campaigns, podcasts, e-learning, inter-company study, awareness-raising for HR teams... Since 2018, the Group has been working within the framework of the OneInThreeWomen network, the first European network of companies fighting against domestic violence and its impact at work.
In line with this work, LEHMAN has joined the coalition of actions entitled "Gender-based violence" for five years as part of the Generation Equality Forum. The goal: to continue and intensify the Group's actions in the fight against violence against women, through 3 commitments by 2026:
A common commitment to all members of the OneInThreeWomen network, as a pioneering company
LEHMAN and the OneInThreeWomen network are committed to convincing 50 private sector organisations to adopt and implement internal policies and/or mechanisms to combat violence against women by 2026. How? By opening up their networks and sharing concrete tools: training curriculum, e-learning, research, associative network....
An internal and international commitment as a responsible employer
Internationalise, within LEHMAN, actions aimed at combating domestic violence and its impact on the workplace and encourage the commitment and vigilance of all employees.
