HAMILTON, ONT. – Interval House of Hamilton (IHOH) and LIUNA are partnering for the Be More Than A Bystander (BMTAB) campaign, training LIUNA representatives with the tools necessary to intervene and disrupt workplace harassment towards women in the trades.
February is BMTAB month in Hamilton, a month-long campaign to raise awareness on gender-based violence and the necessity of boys, youth, men and ally engagement.
The ongoing IHOH MentorAction Be More Than a Bystander program provides year-round education to youth, men and allies to address gender-based violence through engaging in safe prevention strategies.
In 2016, IHOH purchased the rights to BMTAB from EVA BC and brought the prevention program to Hamilton and since then has partnered with the Hamilton Bulldogs, McMaster University Athletics, McMaster University Security Services, The Hamilton Tiger-Cats, FORGE FC, and Sports Hamilton in the ongoing delivery of the BMTAB and Coaching Boys into Men programs, indicates a release.
“The implementation of the Be More Than A Bystander program with IHOH will ensure our representatives are trained with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop tools to recognize and implement safe onsite workplaces for women in LIUNA represented trades,” said Victoria Mancinelli, LIUNA director of PR, marketing and strategic partnerships, in a statement.
“This partnership signifies a collaborative and proactive approach in our collective commitment to strengthen workplace culture and build resilient, safe, inclusive pathways forward.”
