The First Ever

Summit on workplace violence prevention, the PAVE Summit 2022 featured over 18 topics and discussions from 15 industry-leading speakers, interactive panels, and more, exercising PAVE's commitment to redefining workplace violence through realistic, sustainable solutions for a modern empowered workforce. Hosted at the Omni Hotel in Chicago, the event spanned 2.5 days beginning with a reception on September 19th, followed by two full days of presentations, discussions, networking, and collaboration.

The Summit garnered diverse in-person and virtual attendance from around the globe, with sessions led by keynote speakers from sectors hardest hit by violence in the workplace. Among those speakers were three decorated Olympians who led vigorous discussions on violence in sports and beyond, featuring Arlene Limas, OLY, Danielle Scott, OLY, and Nancy Hogshead-Makar, OLY.


The goals and accomplishments of the Summit were to unite decision-makers from different sectors to collectively examine the causes of workplace violence, and its critical intersections, resulting in the co-author of practical solutions that would lead to change within their own companies and industries overall. The data and results of the Summit will be formally outlined in the PAVE Report, which will be distributed to all participants, crediting collaborators, and outlining key takeaways from the event.

"For me, this Summit surpassed all expectations. Just hearing all the conversations and seeing the presentations given with so much passion - knowing that sectors like the hospitality, healthcare, and emergency preparedness sectors, which impact our daily lives, with the inclusion of the sports sector, with its position and opportunity to usher in change, are collaborating. It has been an amazing experience for me and a great second step in the journey of PAVE Prevention. We are excited to witness the dominoes falling in the opposite direction and see where they lead. I owe so much gratitude to those who took time out of their day to participate in a virtual session and those who dedicated two and a half days in person. It truly is incredible, and I am left inspired and energized."

PAVE CEO, Arlene LImas, OLY
