ASIS Canadian Pacific Chapter 190 – Gender Based Violence with Kevin Calder
May 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Gender-based violence takes many forms and affects many stakeholders in the workplace. In BC, WorkSafeBC recognizes domestic violence spillover as an occupational hazard. This creates a regulatory requirement to include this risk in a company’s violence prevention program. This is only one of many considerations when responding to the risk of gender-based violence in the workplace. In this online session, we will review the increase in gender-based violence and the regulatory requirements, the City of Vancouver’s CPS-led approach to responding to and mitigating gender-based violence risk, and look at some considerations for gender-based violence prevention programs.
Kevin Calder is the Manager of Threat Management and Investigations overseeing the City of Vancouver’s City Protective Services (CPS), Threat Management Unit. Kevin is trained in completing protective investigations and threat assessments related to a range of violence risk. This includes homicide, suicide, domestic and sexual violence, and stalking. In addition, Kevin was responsible for establishing the City’s threat management framework, and works collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders, with a focus on the corporate environment and risk mitigation.
Kevin is a strong supporter of ongoing education and association membership. He holds CPP and PSP certifications with ASIS Intl, Certified Threat Manager designation with the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals, is a certificate holder in workplace investigations with the Association of Workplace Investigators, and received an Associate Certificate in Leadership and Conflict Resolution from the Justice Institute of British Columbia.
