Equally Safe at Work

Published: 01 August 2019

SHETLAND Islands Council has signed up to the Equally Safe at Work programme, which aims to promote an inclusive workplace culture which prevents violence against women.

The initiative will involve a number of activities over the next two years, with the first being a staff survey to gather any experiences of gender inequality, workplace culture, flexible working and violence against women.

Further details and resources can be found on the Domestic Abuse & GBV pages of this site here.
