Make It Our Business provides information and education to help employers and other workplace stakeholders to address domestic violence in the workplace.
This presentation is an awareness program to address domestic violence. This is not just family issue, this is workplace issue. The desired outcome from these trainings is to start a dialogue and remove stigma around the topic of domestic violence.
We have a large trained presenting team that can modify their presentations to your work place upon consultation.

Training can be structured to your needs, lunch & learn, staff meeting, or segmented training.

It includes any threatening behavior which gives the worker reasonable cause to believe that he or she are at risk”. AHS Community Sector WPV-Working Group Definition
