For over two weeks, lectures, conversation rounds and community mobilization on the subject will be promoted. Actions are part of the Program for the End of Violence against Women of MPT

TCP – the company that manages the Paranaguá Container Terminal – will start on Tuesday (22) its Campaign against Violence against Women, through a series of awareness-raising actions and transformation of local society. The actions will run until December 10 and are part of a technical cooperation agreement promoted between the company, the Labor Public Ministry (MPT) and the Women of Brazil Group.

Lectures, conversations, meetings and mobilization of men and women on the theme are planned. The target audience is the community of Paranaguá and the company’s employees. The event schedule will be made available in all the Terminal’s official social networks.

“TCP is the main employer on the Paraná coast, with more than 1,300 employees. We want to give voice to the cause, facilitating support and awareness actions to transform the reality of women who suffer violence in Paranaguá. Violence hurts women and their rights, besides affecting socially and economically the development of our country”, explains Thaís Marques, the Terminal’s Human Resources Manager.

The cooperation between TCP, the Labor Prosecutor’s Office and the Women of Brazil Group is part of the Program to End Violence against Women, signed in the beginning of the second half of 2021. The goal is to create a network of supporters to develop awareness and overcome gender violence and domestic violence through actions aimed at women and their families assisted by the program.

The project will have several actions promoted by the company, such as virtual talkings, open to the public, informative content that will be disseminated through the Terminal’s social networks, and visits to the community to promote rounds of conversation on the subject. In addition, TCP has committed to make available internal vacancies annually to women in situations of gender violence assisted by the Justice and Social Assistance System, also promoting measures that allow the removal of their homes to the workplace and the modification of the daily routine of these women.

Thaís Marques emphasizes that supporting the cause demonstrates TCP’s social responsibility and commitment to encouraging actions for an egalitarian society. “Promoting the program means giving a voice to the most vulnerable victims who do not always receive the right guidance or support to stand firm in their position.”
