Led by RAINN, the US’s Largest Anti-Sexual Violence Organization

Tuesday, July 16

16 July 10.30 PM AWST
17 July 12AM ACST / 12.30AM AEST


This 86 Harassment training, developed and conducted by RAINN, on Creating a Safer Community is focused on deepening participant knowledge about the relationship between individual behaviours and organizational responsibility, and equipping participants with the skills and tools to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct within the beverage alcohol and hospitality industries.

Utilizing feedback and knowledge RAINN gained from engaging with members of these two industries, WOTVS engaged RAINN to create an industry specific 2-hour virtual training that will highlight the significance of a holistic approach to prevention and response. During the training participants will have an opportunity to engage in interactive learning through discussion and scenarios, practicing strategies for reinforcing healthy boundaries and norms within the industry, with a focus on bystander intervention. RAINN will introduce additional principles of trauma-informed communication and engage with participants in applying these principles within the industry.


Creating a Safer Community will cover the following topics:

  • Complexities of sexual misconduct, and how it impacts the beverage/alcohol and hospitality industries
  • Individual and organizational considerations for establishing healthy norms and boundaries within the industry
  • Strategies for bystander intervention
  • Applying fundamental principles of trauma-informed communication to support survivors
