2021 Annual Training Forum finds success online!

EVA BC’s 2021 Annual Training Forum conducted online for the first time focused on honouring anti-violence workers through building their capacity to carry forward their crucial work of supporting survivors of gender-based violence and their communities.

Dark red text shows a quote which reads: I want to say thank you to EVA BC and all the many people who were instrumental in putting this forum together. It has been amazing, renewing, supportive and deeply meaningful for me to be together with everyone for these four days. The quote is labeled as Feedback from ATF Participant.Over our four days together, the 2021 Training Forum:

  • Explored the current contexts of anti-violence work and those most impacted by gender-based violence;
  • Gained knowledge and skills in responding to emerging issues, including providing services during the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Built strategies for wellness, self-care, and mitigating the impacts of vicarious trauma;
  • Integrated intersectional, anti-racist and decolonizing approaches; and
  • Created opportunities for cross-provincial and cross-sectoral connection.
