UN Women Security Partners – Training on Sexual Harassment
What a joy and privilege it is to continue to train on an subject I am so passionate about. Building safe environments to report sexual harassment is an ongoing process of learning.
Last week I had the pleasure to provide training on international good practices on sexual harassment, including integrating a survivor centered approach to the instructors of the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia.
The training focused on integrating gender equality principles, as well as United Nations Security Council resolutions on Women, Peace and Security (WPS), into the Academy’s training courses for security officers.
This training was conducted within the framework of the UN Women project “Accelerating Implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Georgia”, generously funded by the Conflict Stability and Security Fund of the British Government.

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.
