PRESS RELEASE — DURHAM, NEW HAMPSHIRE — Soteria Solutions, the leader in innovative programs that prevent sexual and interpersonal harassment and build safe and respectful organizational cultures, will provide bystander intervention-based, anti-harassment and workplace civility training programs as well as organizational assessment expertise as NOAA works to strengthen its prevention programs as part of a yearlong workforce initiative.

With staff based in offices, laboratories, ships on extended voyages, and remote, isolated locations, NOAA faces complexities that few organizations experience when implementing anti-harassment programs. Soteria Solutions will support NOAA’s organization-wide prevention strategies by identifying opportunities for intervention, building knowledge and skills to prevent workplace harassment, and tailoring training programs to meet the diverse needs of NOAA’s 12,000-person workforce.
NOAA’s Workplace Violence Prevention and Response Manager Kelley Bonner commented, “We’re excited to build a more cohesive approach to prevention and providing bystander intervention and anti-harassment training to provide NOAA employees a safer, more respectful work environment.”
Soteria President Jane Stapleton noted, “NOAA’s approach to harassment prevention is forward-thinking; they are looking beyond simple legal compliance and working to build a better culture for all staff members. We’re very pleased to have the opportunity to work with Kelley and the NOAA team.”
