Decades before sexual harassment cases were on the cover of every major media publication, Mike Domitrz was being brought in by leading educational institutions and the U.S. military to help them pursue a new standard of consent and respect. With Mike being the author of 3 books and an award-winning DVD, you get one of the world’s leading influencers and thought-leaders on the topic of respect.
You may have seen Mike on NBC Dateline as a featured subject matter expert or being quoted in international news publications. He is continuously being sought out for his proven track record of helping people shift their paradigm on respect.
Why does Mike have such an intense passion and drive? In 1989 while in college, he received a phone call that his sister had been raped. As he held the phone tightly to his ear, he simply could not believe what he was hearing. Mike decided to make a difference and began speaking out.
In 2003, he founded The Center for Respect which conducts trainings for tens of thousands each year. Today, small and large companies and associations are turning to Mike Domitrz to have him help them do what he has done for universities and the US Military: Create a culture of respect throughout their organization.
Mike’s extensive experience and incredible talent as a speaker enables him to connect with audiences of all ages in honest, unique conversations that are always built on creating positive behavioral change for each individual and the organization as a whole. Mike knows exactly when to engage your audience with his hilarious sense of humor – while at the same time knowing the precise moment to draw serious, self-reflective emotion from each individual.
Imagine teaching 15-year-olds about “asking first” and then later that same day talking with admirals and generals about creating mutually amazing work relationships. You know Mike will be able to connect with each person in your audience.
Through an open, honest, fun, and crucial discussion, Mike Domitrz taught us how to think more carefully about our words and actions while creating an inclusive environment for all. Mike Domitrz was the perfect expert to provide us the 'Why' and 'How To' for Creating a Culture of Respect.Miriam FogelManager, Visiting Faculty, Alumni & Fellow Services
