Domestic violence is a serious issue which impacts more than 40,000 individuals in Connecticut. Workplace policy and awareness strategies for employers are enormously relevant and an important step toward helping public and private employers develop and strengthen policies that better prevent and appropriately respond to employees experiencing domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
Futures Without Violence’s Workplaces Respond team and the Connecticut Coalition on Domestic Violence will host a webinar on the key policy elements and strategies to raise awareness, and build cost-effective trainings and partnerships with state coalitions.
After the webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Identify strategies to prevent and respond to domestic violence impacting the workplace
- Discuss strategies for best practices of responding to incidents after they occur
- Outline resources available to address domestic violence in the workplace to ensure safety for all workers
