“Change the Culture” to be presented on UHWO Campus

“Change the Culture,” a federal program taking a comprehensive approach to the prevention of destructive events and behaviors, will be the topic of a presentation coming to the UH West Oʻahu Campus.

U.S. Navy Capt. Roy Nafarrete, a Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Officer, will discuss “Change the Culture” in a presentation scheduled 8:30-9:30 a.m., Oct. 24, in B217. Capt. Nafarrete will discuss how the program aims to prevent and eliminate destructive events such as sexual assault, sexual harassment, domestic violence, hazing, bullying and discrimination. Staff and faculty who attend can earn 20 Pueo Points for their division.

The program complements other prevention training and Full Speed Ahead, a U.S. Navy program designed to reinforce the Navy’s core attributes and help build a strong foundation for professional and resilient sailors. Change the Culture also promotes positive behaviors.

The program promotes primary prevention of destructive behaviors and events by:

  1. Defining Culture
  2. Examining society’s role in the development of our personal behaviors.
  3. Challenging individuals to assess their own behavior.
  4. Emphasizing that “change starts with the individual” 
  5. Re-defining and executing new social norms derived from individual behavior change
