A 2005 national telephone survey by CAEPV found that 21 percent of full-time employed adults were victims of domestic violence and 64 percent of them indicated their work performance was significantly impacted.
The HopeLine from Verizon donation will help CAEPV fund educational programs and webinars that help increase employer awareness of domestic violence as a workplace issue and offer strategies for how employers can recognize and respond to this issue.
We're honored to partner with organizations like CAEPV that are working to increase awareness of domestic violence outside the home and providing much needed tools and resources to help reduce partner violence.
A national benchmark survey of 1200 employed adults released by CAEPV in October 2005 found that intimate partner violence has a wide and far-reaching effect on Americans' working lives - with 21% of those surveyed identifying themselves as victims of domestic violence.
CAEPV Executive Director Kim Wells said, "Because domestic violence's impact does not stop at the office front door, America's employers need to take action - by putting in place accessible programs and policies for colleagues and victims alike.
Wells sited the landmark CAEPV
study that found 64 percent of domestic violence victims say their ability to work is affected by violence.
The meeting will include a roundtable discussion of corporate member activities throughout the year, a report of current CAEPV
projects and programs, and a discussion of the future direction of CAEPV
