“All of us were bowled over by the training. Beautifully done and powerful message. STANDING FIRM’s work shows the very real economic impact partner violence has on companies. They provide practical advice to coworkers, supervisors, executive leaders, and subordinates about actions to take if they suspect a colleague is either a victim or a perpetrator of partner violence. STANDING FIRM’s work shows that partner violence is systemic in society and not only is it important to address the issue to promote the company’s future success, it is clearly ‘the right thing to do’.”
