Level 1: Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Training with Special Guest, RAINN
Brought to you by WOTVS, DISCUS & WSWA
Wednesday, September 21
9:00AM PST / 12:00PM EST
As part of an ongoing initiative to support those in the beverage alcohol industry, Women of the Vine & Spirits (WOTVS), hired RAINN to develop this customized training specifically for the beverage alcohol industry. With great gratitude, we are able to continue offering these impactful modules thanks to the support of Silver Corporate Member Distiller Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) and Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA). We believe strongly that this collaboration between our organizations will result in these trainings reaching more team members in our industry, creating safer work environments for all.
RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization, will provide participants with trauma-informed education to increase awareness around sexual misconduct and strategies for prevention. RAINN helps organizations meet the complexities of today’s climate by moving beyond compliance toward values-based, sustainable solutions that promote safe and healthy communities.
Leveraging their expertise and insights, RAINN’s consulting team will deliver a customized, interactive virtual training to increase awareness around sexual misconduct and provide participants with the knowledge to apply strategies for prevention and response.
In this 90-minute session, RAINN will begin with exploring the complexities of sexual misconduct and how common misconceptions play a role in the experiences of survivors. Participants will deepen their understanding of the link between power dynamics and common responses to trauma. With this foundational knowledge, participants will learn skills and strategies for creating safe, supportive communities. These strategies will include practical tools for setting and protecting boundaries, intervening in potentially unsafe or uncomfortable situations, and supporting survivors in sensitive, trauma-informed ways.
This session will not be recorded. Capacity is limited to 295 attendees.
