Guest Speaker: Tuval Diner Nafshi
Every year, several thousand Albertans will be unsafe in workplaces because of violent personal relationships.
Alberta businesses have suffered huge losses due to domestic violence and the legislation is changing: organizations are being held accountable when domestic violence ends tragically. Leaders aren't born. They create themselves. Then they make things happen out there, in the real world. Understanding the ways in which individuals can become ambassadors and pioneers for change is about creating a cultural shift. A movement.
In addition to understanding how cultural norms play a role intimate partner violence, Tuval will facilitate a discussion around ways to recognize the signs of violence, how to appropriately help victims of violence, and protect workplaces and employees at the same time. Making positive change for those living in violence is everyone's responsibility. In addition to saving costs, organizations who apply the toolkit are saving lives.
