Businesses can effectively address gender-based violence by implementing policies and procedures to prevent and respond to incidents, providing training and education to employees on gender equality and violence prevention, and engaging with local organizations and stakeholders to address gender-based violence in their communities and value chains. Additionally, companies can demonstrate their commitment to ending gender-based violence by publicly speaking out against it, promoting gender equality, and incorporating it into their sustainability and corporate social responsibility initiatives. By taking a comprehensive approach, businesses can create safer, more inclusive, and more equitable workplaces and communities.
