My conversation with Ruthann was a deep one, a challenging one. Ruthann shared a lot of statistics about domestic violence in Canada. The numbers were a lot higher than I could have imagined. She talked a lot about the responsibility of employers in supporting victims of domestic abuse, and that there is so much value in education.
As challenging as it might be to listen to this one - I would recommend that you do. It was empowering and enlightening. If you are someone who wants to know how to make more of a difference in this unprecedented time and rise of domestic violence against women and children - have a listen.
“Now is not the time to play small. Now is the time for leaders to step up and to step into their truth in providing support and providing care and attention to one another.” - Ruthann Weeks
