The Green Dot Strategy - Sexual Violence Prevention Initiative
The Green Dot primary prevention initiative is a new way of thinking about and doing prevention. Green Dot is about culture change - harnessing the power of individual choices to shift our current norms. It was designed by integrating some of the best research on social change, diffusion of innovation, communication, persuasion, bystander intervention, and perpetrator patterns into a program that makes practical sense. The Institute will feature Green Dot author Dr. Dorothy J. Edwards of the University of Kentucky. Dr. Edwards will train participants on launching a Green Dot movement in their communities, agencies and universities. Participants will leave the Institute fully equipped with the training, materials and resources necessary to get started.
