New research conducted by Ipsos MORI and NUI Galway as part of DfID funded global Programme on What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls indicates that productivity loss at the workplace of both women survivors and male perpetrators is significant, resulting in nearly two weeks lost work for a survivor and up to a week for a male perpetrator annually.

This webinar will focus on understanding the implications of the new ILO convention for the business sector, discuss the impact of intimate partner violence for businesses in low and middle-income countries, and explore business models to prevent intimate partner violence.
