Engagement as a process and strategy: Strengthening connections and leadership opportunities to prevent sexual and intimate partner violence

Thursday, 3 December 2020

Strategies that build leadership and engagement in sexual and domestic violence prevention among young people and other community members can have multiple benefits. Community members, including those with lived experiences of violence, have first-hand knowledge regarding the assets and needs of their communities contributing to stronger program design and cultural fit. Leadership and engagement opportunities also can help build protective factors such as social connection and positive social norms and reduce risk factors such as harmful gender norms. Further, mobilizing young people and other community members can build long-term commitment to solving social problems and building safe, healthy, and equitable communities. In this web conference, participants will hear from speakers working to promote leadership and engagement for sexual and intimate partner violence prevention, and dialogue about unique challenges and opportunities to doing this work in the current climate.
