AFETT Joins the Discussion on Ending Violence Against Women
Our Immediate Past President, Cavelle Joseph, was one of the feature speakers at a recent seminar held at Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business as part of the observance of the International Day to End Violence Against Women.
Survive, Thrive, Transform was free to the public and featured many knowledgeable and inspiring speakers from a variety of organisations. Cavelle spoke on “Creating a Safe Work Environment”, elaborating on how a survivor can cope in the workplace.
Other speakers included Aurora Noguera-Ramkissoon, UN Population Fund Liaison Officer, who shared the UN’s message on this year’s theme, and Gillian Wall, Founder of Powerful Ladies of Trinidad and Tobago (PLOTT), who spoke on local crime statistics and what individuals and communities can do to reduce the numbers. Keisha Mac Quan, Centre Manager, First Citizens Bank, shared key strategies for securing a financial future, while Sean Hoyte, CEO, Cyber Security and Anti-Crime Services, talked about cyber violence. Sensei Kerry Grant ended the workshop with a presentation on personal self defence strategies.
AFETT was happy to support this initiative to encourage dialogue on this important issue.
