United Way of the Mid-South’s network of partners works to reduce domestic violence in our community in many ways, including the use of education and awareness efforts.

Domestic violence isn’t a “private matter” that stays in a person’s home when they go to work. In fact, it is possible for domestic violence to become workplace violence, and it also impacts an organization’s medical and mental health costs.

Later this month and again in June, United Way is sponsoring workshops to help organizations and human resources professionals properly recognize, respond and refer people who are experiencing domestic violence.

The Violence at Home, Victims at Work / Employers Confront Domestic Violence seminars will be held on Thursday, May 30 at The Community Foundation of Greater Memphis (1900 Union Avenue, Memphis, TN) from 8:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. and again on Thursday, June 27 at United Way of the Mid-South (6775 Lenox Center Court, Memphis, TN) from 8:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. United Way will host breakfast at 8:00 a.m. during registration at each workshop.

Seating is limited and early indications suggest spaces will fill quickly. Please reserve your seat today completing this short form and/or by contacting Janet Haas at janet.haas@uwmidsouth.org or call 901.433.4333.
