Event description

Description

As a VAWC group, we have seen lots of changes over the past few years - Violence Against Women and Children became a stand-alone cluster at SSWR and our SIG continues to grow. Gender-based violence was included as part of the Family Violence Grand Challenge through AASWSW, and relates to other grand challenges. This is an important opportunity to come together as a group to consider the intersection of research and practice, our role in social work organizations, and our vision moving forward.
