Resource Launch! Supporting Survivors of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse
Rameesha Qazi and I have the pleasure of presenting the new Digna – The Canadian Centre of Expertise on the Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse resource we worked on: “Supporting survivors of sexual exploitation and abuse: A how-to guide for creating support resources.”
When: On Wednesday, June 8 from 1 to 3 pm ET.
Why attend: Survivors may go to anyone in the organization, so ensuring a consistent, safe and supportive reaction and reception is key. That is the reason why we created this guide to support organizations in preparing to support survivors of sexual exploitation and abuse, before an incident occurs.
We will show you how to use it and why it is important to always be prepared.
Register for the event here.
This is a free and open event, so feel free to share the registration link with your colleagues!
Simultaneous interpretation (English and French) will be provided; however, the facilitators will be presenting in English.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Drawing on a unique blend of skills & lived experience, raised in a Montreal-based Jewish family with a history of social entrepreneurship, I come to ALG through a non-linear path and bring a one-of-a-kind perspective. As a “recovering human rights lawyer” I bring together the pragmatic problem solver in me, guiding others to make things better, and the neurodivergent creative facilitator, educator and communicator, with a deep passion for human growth, connection and empowerment.
In my free time, you can find me fawning over Maya, the family dog, doing yoga or meditating and on walks, so many walks, in rain, shine or snow.
Most importantly I am called to help humans create more compassionate, safe and inclusive spaces and organizations where all women can thrive. This is what lights me up and makes me tick.
