On December 14, our Co-Founder Joe Torre and Executive Director Yolanda Jimenez paid a visit to Unilever’s headquarters in New Jersey. While there, they shared the mission and goals of Safe At Home with more than 500 Unilever employees while speaking on the People With Purpose panel.
The panel event marks an expansion of Safe At Home’s partnership with Unilever. In addition to being honored at our 2018 Annual Gala in New York City, they also helped raise funds and awareness for our organization by connecting us to ShopRite, who ran a special in October to donate the proceeds on Unilever products to Safe At Home.
The panel was introduced by Amanda Sourry, President of Unilever North America, and included as panelists Gina Boswell, President of Customer Development, who served as the moderator; Mike Clementi, Unilever’s Vice President of Human Resources; and Joe and Yolanda. Topics included Joe’s personal story of witnessing domestic violence as a child, which inspired him to create Safe At Home; how our program creates safe spaces for kids; and how we can all contribute to ending the cycle of violence and trauma.
Thank you to Unilever for inviting Safe At Home to present – and for being a tremendous partner to our organization.
