Presented by the Independence House in partnership with the Cultural Center of Cape Cod. Does your place of work have a Code of Conduct? Does everyone who uses your services feel safe in your building? Do all your employees know what to do or say if someone disclosed sexual violence? Come and learn how organizational policies can help to prevent sexual and domestic violence. We will share specific steps to take and available resources to use in reviewing your organizational policies. This workshop is free but does require prior registration.
