Human Development and Safety Skills Education
Enhancing productivity and creativity through safe workspaces.
PAVE Prevention, a social enterprise dedicated to shifting the culture of violence in workplaces through human safety skills training. We believe that by empowering the individual, focusing on human development, and creating more equitable and violence-resistant workspaces, we can disrupt the domino effect of workplace violence and create safer communities.
Established in 2021 in the United States of America, its mission is to provide training and consulting services to individuals and organizations - and the communities in which they operate - on proactively preventing, responding and healing from violent events. Pave Prevention’s founders (Yudit Sidikman, Arlene Limas, and Luis Jimenez) have long recognized that when individuals are equipped with the skills and knowledge to set healthy boundaries, communicate assertively, and manage conflict, companies as well as communities benefit monetarily and culturally. Especially as the world rebounds from the COVID pandemic, business leaders will increasingly be called upon to ensure safe workplaces for all their employees, especially women, as a means of competitive advantage for talent.

"Workplace violence is any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide. It can affect and involve employees, clients, customers and visitors."
" I'm hoping to ignite change at the corporate and institutional level. It is the right time to seek to make those changes“.
