Spurred by the host of recent headlines of sexual assault scandals, longterm BLVR client, Matt Pipkin founder of Speak Your Silence, shared his vision to create a new, higher standard for businesses. He wanted to give organizations the opportunity to make a public promise to proactively stand against sexual misconduct in the workplace, a creed of excellence in behavior. Matt observed that while the incidents in the headlines were deeply personal, filled with pain and often a desire to keep them private, they overwhelmingly took place in public places, most often in the workplace. And there was no known solution.
We instantly fell in love with the idea of giving organizations the opportunity to operate by a higher standard of behavior and came alongside Matt as a strategic partner to help launch WeVow.
WeVow is a membership-based product for businesses that want to build a culture of safety, trust and zero tolerance for sexual misconduct in their workplace. A business’s membership symbolizes its public promise to live by a higher standard. Members add the WeVow seal to their websites, post it within their workplace, and make it visible to employees and customers. WeVow includes an Incident Reporting Platform for safe reporting, wellness counseling for those affected, and comprehensive resources on sexual misconduct. The first product of its kind, WeVow is going live this September.
