Strategies to Engage the Business Sector in Promoting Community Safety
Violence takes a toll on the business and economic climate. The business sector has a stake in the solution to violence and an important role to play in achieving peace. Businesses can play a critical part in making multisector efforts to prevent violence succeed. For example, targeted employment and employee training, mentorship, apprenticeship, and economic development, in conjunction with coordinated efforts in the public and service sectors, can make a difference in violence rates while improving the business climate and local economies.
Featuring Jenna Abbott, Executive Director of the Mack Road Partnership, and Freddy Barton, Executive Director of Safe & Sound Hillsborough, this webinar will provide an overview of the business sector’s role in violence prevention efforts. It will describe strategies for engaging this sector, provides examples of successful business sector engagement, and show how PI’s Collaboration Multiplier Tool can be used to support business and other sectors in coming together to achieve a shared vision.
