“Sexual assault is a scourge that impacts every individual,” said Reventlow. “We take pride in creating a work environment that treats everyone with dignity and respect, which is why we have a zero-tolerance policy for sexual assault within our workforce.”

In addition to Reventlow and Knight, each distribution center commander and deputy have also signed their own proclamation, committing their names and efforts to creating a workplace free of sexual assault.

DLA Distribution employees have been invited to participate in a variety of activities to raise awareness regarding sexual assault prevention.

The virtual teal ribbon relay, teal Tuesdays and denim Fridays are ways employees can participate together, though distant, in raising awareness about the zero-tolerance policy DLA Distribution holds regarding sexual assault.

More information regarding these Distribution wide events can be found in this pamphlet.
