CIAFV February Members’ Meeting
February 21, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+7FREE
We are excited to have a presentation from representatives of the City of Edmonton’s Gender-Based Violence & Sexual Assault Prevention Initiative:
- Lisa Federspiel: Social Planner with the City of Edmonton Gender-Based Violence & Sexual Assault Prevention Council Initiative. The Initiative joined the UN Women Safe Cities Safe Public Spaces flagship program in 2016 – questions Lisa grapples with include what would it mean for Edmonton to be a safe city? For women and girls in all of their diversity to freely and fully participate in public life? How do we best engage men and boys in ending gender-based violence, what does effective awareness/ public education look like? With a Masters in Public Administration (Dispute Resolution), Lisa’s background in conflict transformation, social services, diversity and inclusion and sexualized violence support the work and the goal – which is to end gender-based violence (in all of its forms) in Edmonton.
- Michelle Holubisky is a Community Building Social Worker with the Family Violence Prevention Team, under Citizen Services for the City of Edmonton. Her work focuses on primary and secondary prevention of family violence and engages with the community in education, advocacy and community building on various issues of family violence. As part of her work for the City, Michelle sits on the Gender-Based Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention Initiative committee bringing a community-based perspective and lens to the work of the committee.
