Successful seminar for Whanganui Businesses

Jo Hodder, Tim Easton, Tim Metcalfe, Anna Campbell

White Ribbon Ambassador and Trustee Anna Campbell, who was our very first female Ambassador, travelled to Whangaui in June to present at a free seminar hosted by Jigsaw Whanganui, Whanganui Chamber of Commerce and Whanganui & Partners.

Anna works as chief people and transformation officer for Mitre 10. Jigsaw Whanganui executive officer Tim Metcalfe noted “Anna has vast experience in creating strategy that focuses on customer experience, workplace culture and organisation leadership. She is a powerful advocate for the critical role that all businesses can play in reducing the massive social harm caused by family violence.”

The session supported managers to understand their obligations under the Domestic Violence – Victim’s Protection Act, with particular focus on how domestic violence and its hidden costs can affect the workplace, and how businesses and managers can help by recognising, responding to and addressing the impacts of domestic violence on an employee. The event went incredibly well with 58 attendees from the business sector and Tim Easton  from Whanganui and Partners is keen to look at a pilot incentive programme to help a number of local businesses with White Ribbon’s Workplace Accreditation.

One of the organisers Jo Hodder, from Jigsaw Whanganui, described Anna as ‘an amazing presenter’ and noted the positive feedback from attendees. We are so grateful to Anna for taking time out of her busy schedule to spread the kaupapa in Whanganui.
