Women Building Futures to Offer Domestic Violence Prevention Education Through Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters

March 10, 2022

Women Building Futures (WBF) has partnered with the Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters (ACWS) to offer, through the Employer of Choice program, tailored training and consultation for domestic violence prevention for WBF’s employment partners.

The Domestic Violence and Your Workplace program, developed and delivered by ACWS, is fully customized to align with an employer’s internal processes and prepare leaders to effectively support employees experiencing domestic violence.  

“We’re excited to offer this opportunity to our Employers of Choice to raise awareness of domestic violence and how employers can fully support their employees” says Corinne Longoz, Manager of Strategic Partnerships with WBF. “This partnership will support our employers in their commitments to building, maintaining, and creating safe and inclusive workplaces for all people.” 

“Domestic violence is everyone’s responsibility—this training program will not only save costs for employers but more importantly, it will save lives,” said ACWS Executive Director, Jan Reimer. “We’re proud to be working with Women Building Futures towards creating positive change for those living in violence.”
