The Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) held a two-day workshop focused on Gender Violence Prevention and Response at HMBS Coral Harbour on the 27th and 28th of June.

The workshop which was aimed at developing effective policies to foster a safe and supportive environment for RBDF personnel, began with discussions on various types of work environments, and setting the stage for comprehensive policy development.

In addition to this, Dr. Ross, a USNORTHCOM consultant in Gender-Based Violence, conducted an engaging presentation on 2nd June, specifically addressing Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Response for the personnel at HMBS Coral Harbour Base. This lecture series emphasized the importance of a respectful and inclusive work environment, reinforcing the RBDF’s commitment to safeguarding the well-being of all its members.

Dr. Ross has played and will be playing a pivotal role, creating a ‘climate survey’ for Defence Force members to measure the current workplace and identify areas for improvement. This survey is aimed at providing valuable insight and will initiate informed discussions on enhancing gender violence prevention strategies within the force.

Under the leadership of Commander Defence Force, Commodore Raymond E. King, the Royal Bahamas Defence Force is committed to promoting workforce engagement with while upholding principles of accountability, and workforce empowerment.

The RBDF continues to promote gender equality and equity; women, peace and security; and organizational diversity in addition to the implications involved with gender-based violence and forms of sexual harassment in the workplace.
