PADV works to end the crime of intimate partner violence and empower its survivors.For 40 years, PADV, the largest nonprofit domestic violence organization in Georgia, has provided professional, compassionate, and empowering support to battered women and their children in metro Atlanta. PADV offers safety and shelter for battered women and their children, restores power, self-sufficiency and control to domestic violence survivors, and educates the public on the dynamics of domestic violence.
Dr. Dierickx joins a team of executives from many of Atlanta's top corporations and nonprofit organizations who serve on the PADV board.
"We are thrilled to have someone of Dr. Dierickx' caliber join the board of our organization," said Karla Worley, Global Sales Manager, ADP, member of the board of the Partnership Against Domestic Violence and chairwoman of the 2016 Hearts with Hope Gala. "Constance brings a unique combination of clinical psychology training and hands-on experience in corporations and organizations. We're hoping her pragmatic expertise gets us closer to our vision of a community free of domestic violence."
"This is a cause I feel very passionate about," said Constance Dierickx. "Over the course of my career, I have worked with hundreds of executives, men and women. I am proud to do so. Now it is time for me to devote more of my personal time and financial resources to a charitable organization that literally saves lives. I am excited to join the board of PADV and help expand the services we can provide. Sadly, they are desperately needed."
