Proactive Financial Services Limited (PFS) continues to look at hallmark days of recognition in the eleventh month. Internationally, on this the 25th day of November, every year, an advocate, the United Nations call for Elimination of Violence against Women.

Recognition of this day, locally has also has it’s impact. Here some of the country’s leading women present a strong representation and advocacy to increase awareness of the day and propel changes which will reduce violence against women.

We have the power to make all necessary changes required to put Jamaica in the right spot that it needs to be: “to live, raise families, do business and invest…”
