    Through the Sexual Assault Demonstration Initiative (SADI), six dual/multi-service agencies engaged in a multi-year organizational change process that included assessment, planning, and implementation of new and enhanced services and organizational capacity building.

    The Institute is a 2 ½ day program designed for coordinators, team leaders, and state and territorial level leaders who 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. Effective team leadership is essential to a team’s overall development.  It is complex, challenging, and rewarding work. Creating social and system change improvement requires more than knowledge of best practices undefined it also requires the ability to influence multiple systems and agencies toward improved outcomes. The Institute will build the skills you need to lead multidisciplinary teams as they design, implement, and evaluate their community’s response to sexual violence.
