Rotman RoundTable to #evawCAN
Thu, May 25, 2017, 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM EDT
Eradicating violence against women & girls in Canada (#evawCAN) requires all hands on deck AND a shift in thinking and maybe even a creative/innovative approach.
There are many dates available and more will be added all the time so click on the "Select a Date" for your options and select the date or dates you want to attend. Space is limited. Most conversations are set for 7 AM; we are starting to play with other times so May 15th we will be testing the 6:30 - 8:30 time slot.
The roundtable conversations (#RRTs), with 5-12 participants in each, provide an opportunity to examine what may be at the root of gender violence. We know violence doesn't start at the time of the inappropriate touch or comment, or the slap; sexual harassment in the workplace isn't the starting point either; and, we know it doesn't happen because of alcohol at a party. So where will we find the roots? Like any complex human issue we need to experiment to find the spots for intervention. So, that's what we will do - with your help.
Join us for one roundtable conversation or plan to come back a few times; 90-120 minutes out of your life and see how you might be able to make a difference. We are starting in Toronto and we are starting by inviting men to step up first.
If you are a man age 16 - 95 you are welcome. Each roundtable conversation will be professionally hosted (facilitated) and while we believe you will be inspired to do more after the conversation, there is no obligation. You just need to join us with an open mind and heart willing to explore together.
By registering for one of the #RRTs you are automatically added to our mailing list - of course you can unsubscribe whenever you like. While on our mailing list you will receive: reminders of future #RRTs, next level events for past participants and eventually a newsletter with updates on past conversations.
PLEASE NOTE: the #RRTs on February 28th, March 8th & 21st, April 12th and May 15th are in classroom 157 - #RRTs on April 25th, May 10th & 25th are in classroom 151.
