As I helped build out the Diversity Committee at VTS, one of our initiatives was creating awareness around different aspects of diversity & inclusion. We accomplished this by setting a ‘diversity calendar’ with monthly themes.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and is all about:
- Mourning those who have died because of domestic violence
- Celebrating those who have survived
- Connecting those who work to end violence
To show our support, we encouraged employees to participate in a Wear Purple Day! Happy to say that many employees came to work sporting their best purple attire on Friday, October 20th.
