Transformation Partners in Health and Care > News > Making our workplace a safe place for women and girls
Sue Hunter
Managing Director

As a team of change makers in the health and social care system, with a broad reach, I want to ensure that everyone who works for and with us has a positive experience and that our people, funders and clients are treated with kindness, fairness and integrity.

At Transformation Partners we recognise that continuous improvement is important, and we are on a journey to be more inclusive and add our gained knowledge and experience to benefit our clients and partners. We actively engage with staff around wellbeing, inclusivity and workplace culture and support a range of staff networks, including our Inclusion Steering Group, Parents and Carers Network, and Wellbeing Matters Group. We are also active in the Royal Free London (RFL) Women’s Network and are proud to share their White Ribbon accreditation, which means that we have made a commitment to help end violence against women and girls.

I care deeply about the safety of our female staff at TPHC, along with women and girls who we reach through our work. Our ambition is to eliminate gender inequality and violence against women and girls, through raising awareness of the issues, providing insight, training, and recruiting male ambassadors to help role-model and influence behaviour. 

At TPHC we already operate a culture of openness and transparency and will now also explicitly articulate that this incudes zero tolerance to any violence against women and girls. 

We all think this couldn’t happen in our workplaces, but you have only to check the news and see that it does happen more times than any of us would want.

I therefore encourage all health and care organisations to also sign-up, be ready to support your people and show how your workplaces are safe and trusted spaces.  

About White Ribbon

White Ribbon is the UK’s leading charity engaging men and boys to end violence against women and girls. Its mission is to prevent violence against women and girls by addressing its root cause – attitudes, systems and behaviours around masculinity that perpetuate gender inequality and male violence against women.
