In Commemoration of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence
IGWG’s Gender-Based Violence Task Force Presents
Continuing the Dialogue from SVRI: New Developments and Future Directions in GBV Work
The recent Sexual Violence Research Initiative Forum (SVRI) in Brazil brought together over 450 researchers, activists, service providers, funders, survivors, and other stakeholders from around the world. Conference participants heard a wealth of new evidence, innovations, and initiatives on preventing and responding to gender-based violence (GBV).
The GBV Task Force has invited panelists involved in SVRI as presenters, organizers, and/or participants to share some of the insights and highlights from the conference and lead a discussion on remaining challenges and priorities for future GBV research and programming.
Panelists will include:
- Elizabeth Dartnall, Research Manager at SVRI;
- Amy Bank, Senior Advisor at Puntos de Encuentro;
- Esther Spindler, Research Officer at Georgetown University’s Institute for Reproductive Health; and
- Manisha Mehta, Senior Program Officer at Wellspring Advisors.
Space is limited; please RSVP to Laura Bloom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
