Artist's description: My piece represents the importance of empathy, diversity, perspective-taking, and collaboration. I think when it comes to working through policies we need to surrender to the process and for me, that is messy, diverse, and full of collaboration. I am so honored to have had the opportunity to work through an example of this radical shift of policymaking with such an incredible team that honored the mess and strove towards diversity.

  • Use approaches that are trauma informed and survivor-centred.

  • Ensure all sexual violence prevention and response education and training opportunities actively deconstruct victim-blaming, rape myths and gender norms. Ensure these sessions take an intersectional approach to understanding sexual violence and supporting victim/survivors.
