Impact Bay Area training

The Jack London Improvement District is happy to announce that we are sponsoring a FREE De-Escalation Training for Jack London businesses. The workshop will be held Wednesday, January 9th from 10AM - 11:30AM at 54 Washington. This is a great opportunity for business owners and employees to learn de-escalation and bystander intervention skills with scenario-based practice and experienced facilitators. This event is free and space is limited!

Operating a business in a mixed-use urban neighborhood has its challenges. You or your frontline staff may encounter tricky interactions with individuals who may pose a safety risk to our visitors, customers, or employees, and we'd all like to be able to handle these situations in a way that de-escalates and promotes safety.  We're working with a terrific organization, Impact Bay Area to offer this training free to you. Due to popular demand and limited class size, we must limit attendance to two individuals from each business. 

Please RSVP to let us know if a representative from your business will be attending, by Friday 12/21.  We look forward to learning together as a neighborhood.
