Jodie Fraser, managing director of Fraser Allen Estate Management, explains why her company wanted to recognise the day:

‘It’s important to continue to mark this day. Because despite the changes made around the gender pay gap and women’s rights in general, there’s still a long way to go. Flexible working is going to be key to ensure more women can maintain their positions in the workplace. Until we’re all on a level playing field, we must continue to support awareness days such as this.

The theme

This year’s theme is #EmbraceEquity, meaning creating a fair and equal world. Nick Gazzard, creator of the Hollie Gazzard Trust. That’s a Gloucestershire based charity started by Nick following the murder of his daughter Hollie by her ex-partner in 2014. That followed months of obsessive behaviour, stalking and harassment. 

Jodie Fraser is also a corporate ambassador for the charity and will be talking to Nick Gazzard about the importance of the charity, and how women can keep themselves safe through his safety app – Hollie Guard.

‘Nick lost his daughter Hollie in the most traumatic way you could imagine. I’m inspired by his drive and ambition to keep young women safe. And when I heard about Hollie Guard, I knew it was something that would be a huge benefit to lone workers within my industry. 

‘For us to tell the attendees about the Trust and the app is so important to keep raising awareness around personal safety.’
