Barb Penner Legacy Fund

In 2018, the STANDING FIRM Advisory Council established a scholarship fund in honor of our dear colleague, the late Barb Penner.

As many of you may know, Barb worked with STANDING FIRM companies to provide training for staff, managers and supervisors, human resources professionals, and company leadership in best practice methods for addressing partner violence as a workplace and workforce concern. The Barb Penner Legacy Fund will provide financial support for non-profit organizations and small companies, whose budgets often do not allow for training expenses, to bring these services to their organizations.

Future donations in Barb’s memory as well as a percentage of STANDING FIRM’s yearly Premier-level membership fees will support the Legacy Fund going forward. This will provide wider access to the resources necessary to keep workplaces safe from partner violence and their workforces productive. We believe that Barb would support this initiative with all her heart.
