Domestic violence prevention program development

Every year, nearly two million Ukrainians face the problem of domestic violence. The complexity of the problem is aggravated by the silence caused by fear, stereotypes, and a lack of support from others. Starlight Media’s commitment to keeping employees healthy and safe goes beyond business hours and the office walls, so the company has launched the country’s first corporate domestic violence prevention program.

To uphold the principles of sensitivity and confidentiality, address the complexity of the topic, and provide quality support to victims of domestic violence, the company has provided tools for assistance in the following areas:

  • interaction with specialized organizations providing psychological support to victims of abuse and their children (if any);
  • legal advice and support;
  • workspace safety;
  • financial support;
  • changes in workload and tasks;
  • safe logistics.

Moreover, Starlight Media is a signatory to the UN Population Fund Declaration for Gender Equality and Prevention of Domestic Violence.
