Intimate Partner Violence and COVID-19 in the New World of Work
More than ever, we need to reimagine the world of work, and this includes how employers can build more safety and well-being for women.
I was honoured to present and co-create a session on employer obligations for intimate partner violence in the new world of work, along with expert panelists and practitioners at a UN Commission on the Status of Women Parallel Event – Intimate Partner Violence & COVID: What Can Employers Do?
Co-panelists and co-creators included: Sherna Benjamin Alexander, Olivia Rojas, Lara Quentrall-Thomas and Tamta Muradashvili.
The event was sponsored by the Society of Gender Professionals
As the world continues to face COVID-19, I invite many voices and contexts to build knowledge and share in this area. I know some of you have already expressed interest in this topic on here so please share your own initiatives on this work with the world.

Drawing on a unique blend of skills & lived experience, raised in a Montreal-based Jewish family with a history of social entrepreneurship, I come to ALG through a non-linear path and bring a one-of-a-kind perspective. As a “recovering human rights lawyer” I bring together the pragmatic problem solver in me, guiding others to make things better, and the neurodivergent creative facilitator, educator and communicator, with a deep passion for human growth, connection and empowerment.
In my free time, you can find me fawning over Maya, the family dog, doing yoga or meditating and on walks, so many walks, in rain, shine or snow.
Most importantly I am called to help humans create more compassionate, safe and inclusive spaces and organizations where all women can thrive. This is what lights me up and makes me tick.
On International Women’s Day 2021 I was honoured to be featured by World Pulse in the article: “Her Story Makes History: 21 Women Leaders to Watch in 2021” in the company of a group of 21 changemakers from 13 different countries who are connecting online to power change on the ground, and receive a Digital Changemaker Award as one of World Pulse's 50 Voices Rising in 2022.
