The Canadian Center for the Prevention of Sexual Violence is convening Canadian civil society to explore resources and tools for fostering organizational culture change to support safe working environments and end Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA).

On March 25th, international and Canadian practitioners will share their journey towards implementing policies and systems that ensure activities do no harm, and, when incidents occur, there is a necessary and appropriate survivor-centred support offered. During the conference, participants will share good practices and lessons learned, and gain resources and support from the sector that will help protect the rights of the ultimate beneficiaries of Canadian foreign assistance organizations!

Participants will have an opportunity to share their experiences, identify priorities and indicate their interest to participate in the activities that will be carried out by the Canadian Centre for the Prevention of Sexual Violence – a CCIC project dedicated to preventing sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse.

Following the conference, the Centre will facilitate a three hour training session, in both French and English, on “Receiving a Disclosure and Guiding Survivors”; Training add-on available upon ticket purchase.
