Dawn essentially took the concepts of ... violence prevention and non-violent conflict resolution and demonstrated their additional utility as leadership skills. The workshop was very informative and well received by the participants. I believe the concepts presented are an excellent fit for any sexual assault/violence prevention program and I highly recommend Dawn Haynes as a presenter

One of the things my family has always had a hard time with is that we laugh and joke a lot and we take things not as serious as they need to be. This kind of puts things back into perspective.

And that natural response we have as women is to just back down because we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings... and this training allows us to think outside of that. remember things and it becomes a natural thought, a part of your memory....
— Arlene M.-- Entrepreneur
