No matter what student group you belong to, class you teach, or what department you work for, everyone can benefit from learning about gender violence and its prevention.
We offer a range of presentations related to sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking, that vary from 30 minutes to 6 hours. Presentations are free of charge for all University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff and we can accommodate evening and weekend dates throughout the year. Presenters include staff and/or trained student Violence Prevention Educators.
Contact the Aurora Center to discuss ideas and schedule a presentation. We require at least two weeks’ notice for all presentations.
This comprehensive three hour training objectives include:
a. Train participants on what the definition of domestic abuse is, the behaviors associated with it, and how it affects the workplace population;
b. Train supervisors how to respond with appropriate language and strategies in the workplace when approaching a colleague or an employee under their supervision who may be experiencing domestic violence;
c. Identify resources in the organization and community that could be used to intervene, support, and protect those involved in domestic violence;
d. Recognize how the elements of a positive, violence-free, respectful workplace for all employees enables the open communication of everyone to support employees in a domestic abuse environment. Staff Contact: Katie Eichele
