EVA BC is excited to host our Annual Training Forum, ATF 2021: Honouring Anti-Violence Workers, online on February 25 & 26 and March 4 & 5, 2021.

This unique professional development and networking event will bring together local and international experts to deliver keynotes and workshops to front-line anti-violence workers, executive directors, and program staff across multiple sectors that respond to gender-based violence.

EVA BC’s 2021 Training Forum focuses 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.

The Training Forum this year will honour anti-violence workers through:

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