    2. Domestic Violence & the Workplace Workshop
      12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

      Domestic violence causes significant cost and disruption to the workplace.  Businesses bear the burden of absenteeism, a loss in work productivity and safety issues.  Employers need to recognize the red flags of domestic violence in their employees and work to alleviate this problem.  Their support in combatting domestic violence will not only help to deter the trend and create a more supportive working environment, it will have a positive impact on their bottom line.

      Join our free lunch and workshop on domestic violence in support of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month and learn how the workplace can help its employees cope with domestic violence. Lunch is sponsored by Mexico Restaurant.

      Please note that while this seminar is free, pre-registration is requested, education@cmg-foundation.org.

    1. Boot Camp for New Dads
      9:00 am – 12:00 pm

      First Things First of Greater Richmond presents Boot Camps for New Dads, a program, by men and for men, in which veteran fathers bring their 2-12 month-old babies to orient rookie fathers-to-be on the realities of fatherhood. Register online at http://tinyurl.com/986vaba.

      What we talk about:
      • Caring for babies and new moms, especially when they are crying
      • Working your regular work week on no sleep
      • Financing a family
      • Following conflicting advice
      • Dealing with your mother-in-law
      • Throwing a diaper into a trash can at 40 feet
      The notion that men are clumsy and ignorant about infants has crumbled. Many dads are doing this job and doing it well.
      Men bring their own unique strengths and creativity to caring for their children. When dads gets involved in addition to mom, their children benefit greatly
