I give lots of presentations and workshops on campuses across the country, talking about sexual violence and bystander intervention. Concordia produced a short video outlining some key information about what it means to be an effective bystander.


Media Source

I am often called upon as a subject matter expert on violence against women. After the triple femicide in Wilno on September 22, 2015, I was asked to give context to the systemic problem of violence against women in Canada.

Speaking engagements

Having won the Governor General's Award in Commemoration of the Persons Case (2013), I was a panelist at a Famous Five Luncheon. 

Public education

I am available to provide training, public education workshops and conference talks in both English and French on a variety of topics:

  • Bystander intervention 
  • Rape culture 101 (What it is and what we can do about it)
  • Creative resistance
  • How to support survivors of sexual violence
  • How to bring young women into the movement/campaign/project

I am also happy to work with you to tailor a presentation based on your organizational needs. 

Public education with youth

As a public educator, I have the pleasure of doing sexual violence prevention work with youth. I spoke to Lanark County youth about online sexual violence and they turned my presentation into a video that was distributed to local schools.
