The Minnesota chapter of Professional Women in Pest Management (PWIPM) held a Safe Women seminar on Aug. 25 at the Plymouth branch of the Hennepin County Library in Minnesota.
The learning session featured training for “Identifying and Reporting Human Trafficking” geared toward pest management professionals (PMPs) created by Forshaw Distribution’s “Safe House” project. There was also “Domestic Violence 101” training by the Women’s Advocates Women’s Shelter in St. Paul, Minn.
