CREW takes stand against sexual assault
INLAND EMPIRE, Calif. (Jan. 25, 2012) – CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) Inland Empire’s February luncheon will feature Candie Stalling, executive director of San Bernardino County Sexual Assault Services as keynote speaker. The event will address the personal safety of professionals in networking environments and will be held Wednesday, Feb. 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hilton San Bernardino, 285 East Hospitality Lane in San Bernardino.
Stalling is a certified rape crisis counselor through the Office of Emergency Services, and a council member for California Coalition against sexual assault (CALCASA). She is also an appointed member of the State Advisory Committee (SAC) for the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services for the State of California, Sexual Assault Response Team (SART).
During the luncheon, Stalling will give insight into the growing epidemic of rape, what women can do to protect themselves, and what actions they should take if a situation of this nature occurs.
“Personal safety and being aware of ones surroundings is a very important issue in today’s society, especially in an industry where many of us are working outside of a traditional office, and having Candie here provides invaluable advice as to how to avoid unsafe situations,” said Jennifer Guenther head of CREW publicity. “These are not issues that should be overlooked or taken lightly, and we encourage everyone to come out and listen intently to the information that will be given — it could very easily save your life or the life of someone close to you.”
Local business and community members are invited to attend. Attendance is $35 for members and $45 for non-members before Jan. 6 after which time a $10 late registration fee will be charged. Register at www.crew-ie.org.
