About Mike

Over a decade before sexual assault and 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 for creating a culture of respect and consent.

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 and consent.

Why does Mike have such an intense passion and drive to share with people of all ages?

In 1989, he received a phone call that his sister had been raped. As he held the phone tightly to his ears, he simply could not believe what he was hearing. In the years following, Mike decided to make a difference. As he researched the issue of sexual assault and sexual intimacy, he constantly heard people complaining that most sexual assault seminars were boring and depressing. Mike knew what needed to be done.

With his background in entertainment, he created “Can I Kiss You?” – a fun, interactive, and thought-provoking program that focuses on providing “How To” skills for thriving with consent, intervening in dangerous situations, and better supporting survivors of sexual violence.

The Beginning of The Center for Respect

In 2002, Mike founded The Date Safe Project (now The Center for Respect) which conducts trainings for tens of thousands each year in middle schools, high schools, universities, military installations around the world, and for organizations of all sizes (corporations and associations).

Mike, along with the team at The Center for Respect, has created multiple educational resources including curriculum, poster series, clothing to heighten awareness, an online training center, and more.

The Military Culture

Military leaders, SARCs and SHARP/SAPR professionals continually praise Mike’s thorough understanding of the military culture. Having conducted trainings for all of the services for over a decade, Mike brings a unique perspective to each discussion.

Caring & Engaging

Mike’s thoughtful, caring, and high energy approach combined with his incredible talent as a speaker and trainer 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 community as a whole.

As one of the most sought-after trainers, authors, and subject matter experts, each year Mike speaks in over 70 cities across the globe.
