Women's Personal and Professional Enrichment Series
"STOP Violence Against Teenage and Adult Women"
February 27, 2019
On Wednesday, February 27, 2019, ETSU Public Safety Officer Sgt. Amanda Worley (pictured above), will facilitate “STOP Violence Against Teenage and Adult Women” for the Women’s Personal and Professional Enrichment Lunch Break Series. Location is the Global Understanding Video Conference Room, Campus Center Building, room 233. Start time is noon.
The National Self-Defense Institute’s (NSDI) 'S.A.F.E.' PROGRAM is an initiative to STOP Violence Against Teenage and Adult Women. 'S.A.F.E.' (an acronym for Self-defense Awareness & Familiarization Exchange) is an educational awareness, crime-victim prevention program – encompassing Strategies, Techniques, Options, and Prevention (S.T.O.P.) – that provides teenage and adult women with information that may reduce their risk of exposure to violence.
Worley guides participants through a 13-piece full-color folio packed with safety information every woman should know (a complete folio packet is given to every participant). The packet provides women with solid public safety awareness information to incorporate into their daily lives.
Join us for this important Women's Personal and Professional Enrichment Series Lunch Break Seminar. For more information, contact the Women’s Resource Center at 423-439-5772 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
