Breakfast with the Guys 2018 You can be a leader in ending violence against women

We equip leaders to take action to end violence and abuse against women

How We Can Help You Lead Change

We want to create a cultural shift, a movement: in your workplace, on your daughter's hockey team, during a night out with friends.

To do this we unlock the leadership potential inside you and your community. Then we support you to lead change against violence and abuse of women.
Initial consulation
Every organization and community has unique needs. We recommend the first step is to meet with us so we can learn how to best support you with tailored training.
Training Your Leaders
Our training is strengths-based and non-judgmental. We create safe learning spaces so people can reflect on how to change themselves and how to support their peers.
On-going Support
Change is not easy - things have been this way for a long-time. We support your leaders through coaching, mentoring and fresh resources. We are here to help.
Connect to Community
All across our Province change is happening: be part of a community creating change. Learn from others, share what you have learned or know that you are not alone.
