Public Education

Embrave offers free public education programming to community organizations and groups, schools, and workplaces. Workshops for groups are tailored, interactive and can cover a range of topics connected to gender-based violence (GBV) in all its forms.

Some examples of themes that may be developed and tailored with interested community partners include:

  • Peel’s Enhanced VAW Protocol and resources, and client-centred approaches to serving survivors
  • Healthy and unhealthy relationships, warning signs and strategies, and what are our rights—in theory and in practice
  • Sexual violence, informed and enthusiastic consent, the role of comprehensive sexuality education and the rights to choice and to pleasure
  • Bullying and harassment, cyber-violence, gender-based violence and toxic masculinity, gender identity or sexual orientation, and self-esteem
  • Power, privilege and oppression, the ways patriarchy and misogyny inform systems, and ways to reduce barriers posed by patriarchal colonial norms and values
  • Empowerment for girls and women, cis and trans, and two-spirit and non-binary folks, breaking binaries and building resilience in the face of heteronormativity and misogyny

Embrave’s Public Education and Community Collaboration Program is coordinated by the Public Education and community Collaboration Coordinator. This role is also responsible for leading the Peel Committee Against Woman Abuse (PCAWA).
