Teal Dot bystander engagement training

Posted: December 2, 2014

Hello colleagues,

As you may recall, the 7C Teal Dot program launched earlier this year at the Claremont Colleges, and the coordination team is excited to add a Teal Dot training session for faculty and staff before winter recess. Details are below, and if your schedule allows, please RSVP to Evetth Gonzalez directly. Space is limited for this 7C training, and chairs will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

Tuesday, 12/16 – 9:00am-12:00pm
Hampton Room at Scripps

Light breakfast refreshments will be provided. Hope to see you there!

What is “Teal Dot?”

Teal is the color used for sexual assault awareness and prevention. The Teal Dot program is a comprehensive approach to violence prevention. This model targets all community members as potential bystanders and seeks to engage them, through awareness, education, and skills-practice; we learn both proactive behaviors as well as intervention tips that we can use in the moment, when we are in situations where we consider intervening but are not sure how and if to do so. Our Claremont Colleges approach is modeled after the nationally recognized “Green Dot” program — which generously has allowed us to utilize their approach and material.

Trigger Warning: While Teal Dot training is intended to be a safe space for everyone who attends, this session explores topics themes surrounding sexual violence (including stalking, partner violence and sexual assault). Please be aware that this training may be triggering or upsetting for some. If you would like more information before attending, feel free to contact Ellie Ash-Bala’ at Pomona or Evetth Gonzalez at Scripps.
