Description: 

The Institute is a 2 ½ day course and is open to team coordinators (leaders) and state and territorial level leaders that coordinate or support local teams responding to sexual violence.The Institute’s primary objective is to build the capacity of team leaders to design and facilitate effective team processes. The team leader plays a key role in a team’s overall development. It is complex, challenging and rewarding work. The social and system improvement teams work towards requires more than knowledge of best practices — it also requires the ability to influence multiple systems and agencies in order to apply that knowledge. The Institute will focus on the skills needed to lead multidisciplinary teams to design, implement, and evaluate their community’sresponse to sexual violence.
