We can make a living and make a safer world at the same time. We partner with businesses, corporations, and other organizations to prevent sexual assault, stalking, harassment, and other violence in the workplace. We develop new programs and adapt existing curriculum, as well as ensure effective implementation through training and technical assistance. We also consult on strategic planning and capacity building for violence prevention to create healthy workplaces that foster social, physical, economic, and professional growth opportunities for employees and their clients.
We have adapted our violence prevention programs to create safe work environments, no matter the business size or profession. From multimillion dollar corporations to mom and pop shops, we work to create safe company cultures.
Our work is relevant for individual companies and membership associations. Since 2014, we’ve been collaborating with OTI to adapt and implement the Green Dot Violence Prevention Strategy to address bullying, harassment, hazing, and other forms of aggression in Portland’s construction trades. After an extensive customization of the curriculum, Green Dot for the Trades is currently being piloted on the Multnomah County Courthouse project in Portland, Oregon, led by Hoffman Construction. To ensure impact, an ongoing evaluation project is currently being conducted by a team at Portland State University, examining the effectiveness of the program.
Our impact extends into happy hour, too. We partnered with the world’s premier cocktail festival to provide training for bartenders, distillers, and other spirits professionals. By adapting the Green Dot Violence Prevention Strategy for the hospitality industry, we are working to create a frontline prevention force with skills to intervene in potentially harmful situations in bars, restaurants, and other venues.
