Prior to the holidays, W.O.M.A.N., Inc. was extremely proud to partner with the NFL Super Bowl 50 Planning Committee to provide Domestic Violence Awareness training for their staff. For the Outreach team, this was the perfect end to a successful year of training for the San Francisco community and we want to personally thank Tyler Kingsley, for contacting us on behalf of the committee and for all of the work he did for our group.
The training was held at the Super Bowl 50 headquarters in the Financial District. Employees who attended went through W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s own DV 101 training, which includes establishing a common definition of Domestic Violence, small group activities surrounding the different ways Domestic Violence manifests, a short safety planning exercise and a review of W.O.M.A.N., Inc. services. Attendees asked thoughtful questions throughout and were active participants in their learning. Presenters, Jaymie Fraizer, Annie Fisher & Maureen Egan stayed after to address individual questions and comments and were humbled by the helpful spirit and overwhelming support received.
Being contacted by the NFL to complete a DV training was a truly mind-blowing experience for the W.O.M.A.N., Inc. Outreach Team. Walking into this room of professionals who were sincere in their want to learn and who offered their support to the community we serve has been a highlight for our team and for the organization we serve. But most importantly, it was a victory for survivors.
