Trainings with proven results
COS has partnered with the Pentagon, the Department of Defense, and over 20 U.S. military bases to achieve increased knowledge, empathy, and improved bystander engagement over the last 30 years. Our qualitative and quantitative results have profoundly impacted both the officers and enlisted on the personal and community problem of sexual harassment and assault.
