Women are five times more likely to speak to someone they know…
A Women's Advocate is a specially trained workplace representative who assists women with concerns such as workplace harassment, intimate violence and abuse. The Women's Advocate is not a counsellor but rather provides support for women seeking workplace and community resources and supports them through this process. The women's advocate provides referrals on issues such as sexual assault, domestic violence, anger management, suicide prevention, depression, pregnancy, separation and divorce and stress. Women's advocate may also assist men dealing with similar issues.
Advocates: Listen, believe, validate and assist. Respect confidentiality. Respect a woman's right to make her own decisions. Promote access to community services. When necessary help plan for future safety. When there's nowhere else to turn, the Women's Advocate is there.
