ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: Violence – Be your best self – #SmashYourCeiling, change starts from within -Business & Lifestyle Experimentation for #TheWomanAlchemist
Tomorrow is White Ribbon Day, and as you know, it is the International Day for the Eradication of Violence against Women.
You can be part of the campaign by clicking here, and you will find options to donate to the cause, become an accredited supporter, and much more simply by registering your interest.
That being said, I would like to take this opportunity to speak up on this devastating issue. Violence against women is not okay – violence against anyone, or anything for that matter is not okay.
And if we don’t act against it, nothing will change.
Education to combat violence
I have said it before, and I will say it again. We need to stamp out such behaviours with education.
It begins with us educating and informing our male friends, family members and even children that violence is not the way.
We need to find better methods to problem solve, deal with issues or conflict, and better ways to manage our emotions.
And while there are many online courses that can teach these tricks and tips, it begins with you and me.
What we do within our homes and our communities will make the world a safer place for future generations.
I know that topics like these are difficult to broach, so it is important to have the support of your friends, family, and leaders [Link to previous leadership blog post].
It is a two-way street, and if you begin, I assure you, those around you will take lessons from your example and join the fight as well.
I have seen this first-hand, and I believe that together, we can achieve greatness.
Here’s to eradicating violence and smashing our ceilings at the same time!
See you soon x
