You have another chance to attend a presentation of “Change the Culture,” a federal program taking a comprehensive approach to the prevention of destructive events and behaviors.

U.S. Navy Capt. Roy Nafarrete, U.S. Navy Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Officer, will be returning to UH West Oʻahu to make the presentation from 2 to 3 p.m., Dec. 11, in D141.

Nafarrette previously visited UHWO on Oct. 24 to make a one-hour presentation on the program, which takes a comprehensive approach to the prevention of destructive events, such as sexual assault, sexual harassment, domestic violence, hazing, bullying, and discrimination.  

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 builds resiliency, promotes the prevention and elimination of destructive events and encourages positive behaviors by:

  • Defining culture;
  • Examining society’s role in the development of our personal behaviors;
  • Challenging individuals to assess their own behavior;
  • Emphasizing that “change starts with the individual; and,
  • Re-defining and executing new social norms derived from individual behavior change.

Please RSVP to Trudy Asato at or call 689-2936 by Monday, Nov. 27, 2017.
