FREE WORKSHOP: BYSTANDER INTERVENTION TRAINING
Thursday, March 23rd | 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. | Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis
After the Executive Board meeting on Thursday, all NEA Spring 2017 Meeting attendees and workshop participants are invited to attend a free bystander intervention training session with Independence House, Inc., Cape Cod’s leading resource, counseling and advocacy center to address and prevent domestic and sexual violence. In conjunction with the new Code of Conduct, this training session will help NEA create a culture of active engagement around issues of harassment, giving our membership the confidence to address situations in the moment – perhaps even before they get to the level of a formal complaint.
These skills are also transferable to your work environment and community beyond your professional life. In this political moment when people from marginalized groups are experiencing a rise in aggressive, hateful words and actions, equipping yourself to actively address such incidents before they escalate is a valuable act of solidarity
Anyone interested can RSVP online. For any questions, please contact Anna Clutterbuck-Cook, Inclusion and Diversity Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
