Cardno supports the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

Cardno actively supports client programs that are designed to prevent the acceptance of violence against women and increase the safety of women in communities, in the home and in the workplace. Accordingly, we are proud to support the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25.
Violence against women is a widespread and serious international issue that impacts victims, families and community. It exists across all countries and cultures; the United Nations estimates that 70% of women are subjected to violence in their lifetime.
 
Cardno would like to take this opportunity to highlight the need to raise public awareness of this pervasive issue.
