Help make Tauranga is YOUR business!

About this event

It’s Our Business is training tailored to address the responsibilities and opportunities of hospitality staff and businesses to actively prevent sexual violence. While great work is being done in our communities to raise awareness of the issues, incidents of sexual violence continue to occur at high rates in NZ, particularly when alcohol is involved. We can make Tauranga safer for everyone by empowering and educating our hospitality workforce. This training is being offered for FREE.

This training has been developed by experienced educators and clinicians, and will explore sexual harm prevalence, common myths/misconceptions about sexual harm, practical initiatives for prevention and intervention, and how to safely respond to disclosures of harm. We are committed to creating a safe, strengths-based learning environment and all participants are encouraged to contribute to the training in a way that makes them feel comfortable. Our interactive approach therefore combines a range of different learning methods, including scenario-based learning, small group reflections, media analysis, and take-home written exercises.

Participants will learn how to:

• Define sexual harm and sexual harassment

• Understand sexual harassment in the broader context of society/culture

• Understand the impacts of sexual harm

• Take practical steps for preventing sexual harm

• Establish safe spaces in venues and at events

• Respond safely and appropriately to disclosures of sexual harm

• Manage robust personal and professional boundaries

• Engage in self-care & community care
