What does awareness work mean for us?
The P‑ton Awareness Program addresses employees, investors, startups and external partners to foster awareness of and protection against sexualised violence, boundary-violating behavior, and discrimination of any form.
Our focus is fostering education, respect and awareness around these issues and taking active action against them. Awareness work for us includes, among other things:
Why is there a need for awareness work in the P‑ton?
According to a study by the Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency, one in eleven employees has experienced sexual discrimination at work in the past three years; one third also experienced discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, origin, religion, disability, and/or age.
The aim of the P‑ton Awareness Program is to raise awareness of and combat boundary violations, discrimination, and aggression, as well as provide support to those who experience such behavior in the context of work or other events related to the P‑ton or subsidiaries. In the long term, we aim to create a system that victims of any such behavior can turn to for help, and which breaks down barriers to talking about cases and getting help. As a company, we want to live up to our responsibility in this area.
