Second Annual Change Makers Conference: Tools for Change May 23, 2021


This second annual event brought together dozens of committed individuals to learn practical skills that can be used to affect change in their communities.

Participants were invited to attend three workshops on the following topics:

- "Violence against teenage girls: schools, media and relationships" with Leave Out ViolencE youth facilitators

- "Real men don't hurt women: masculinity and violence against women" with Dr. Harry Stefanakis

-"Change Makers Tools: leadership skills, engagement strategies, and overcomming barriers" with Terry Rogocki (UBC Centre for Intercultural Communication/Oxfam Canada) and Anastasia Gaisenok (Law Courts Education Society of BC/ "We Can" BC)

The community resource fair offered useful information and materials, and consisted of a number of coalition partners.

Although smaller in scale than in the previous year, the event was a success! The workshops were described as "interactive and thought provoking"; participants liked "great content", "great discussion", "the different perspectives of the participants" and "shared ideas and inspiration for change".
