Effective prevention efforts require advocates to build partnerships and engagement across sectors, including with corporations and community leaders. Many domestic violence and rape crisis programs have developed partnerships with individual companies, but Southwest PA Says No More has refined a model for community-level engagement of the corporate sector. This webinar will share lessons learned on how to invite corporate leaders to leverage their influence as employers to address domestic violence as a workplace and workforce issue. You’ll be introduced to STANDING FIRM: The Business Case to End Partner Violence, which provides quality online training and technical assistance, supporting employers to make real and lasting change. Discover how to use your network of existing relationships and the tools offered by STANDING FIRM to extend your prevention efforts by engaging with companies in your community.
Intended audience: No More chapters, advocates, victim service organizations, allied professionals, survivors, donors and others who are committed to creating culture change to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault.
