EVAW International is in a class of its own because of its quality training and education programs for global players with a role in ending violence against women. The organization's greatest strength is its inclusive and comprehensive approach, and convening a broad array pf professionals to share best practices.

I've seen the organization grow and welcome prosecutors and advocates from all over the world- they went home with new ways of thinking and doing the work, while also sharing their own best practices with others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would enhance the international reach of the organization.

EVAW has been a great resource to both myself and my office. I am a prevention worker that supervises several victim advocates. I consistantly get great resources, information, and even free classes that I share with the other professionals that I work with. I am registered to attend my first conference in April hosted by EVAW, and I can't wait! Thanks EVAW for all that you do!

EVAW has equipped me with knowledge to support sexual assault victims in my country. I always receive they invitation for webinars and annual conferences which offer the most advanced and updated information. I consider that this organization should receive more advertisement which could help the general public, allies and other professionals find out and benefit from them.

in June of 2006, EVAW helped present a two-day conference on “The Community Response to Sexual Assault” in Binghamton, NY. Over fifty recipient professionals and community leaders brought additional volunteers and new ideas to the table. They saw that while program members continued to work together, rarely did they have the opportunity to train together. The conference evaluations also prompted a closer look at the coiunty SAFE program’s momentum, direction, and resources. This timely and valuable series of events led to forming a new “Team” to strategically plan the enhancement of skills, increase the collective knowledge, and motivate the alliance of professionals to forge ahead to an even higher level of achievement.

I work for a Federal law enforcement agency and specialize in sex crimes prevention and resposne. I've attended the EVAW conference for the past few years and have received valuable information at each and every one. I've also had the need to contact EVAW when I've needed specific guidance or assistance with issues in my related field. They have always been receptive and their responses were extremely helpful. I will contunue to support EVAW for as long as I'm in this career field and even after I retire.

Helping to build and improve the sexual crimes response program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More funding and personnel dedicated to sexual assault prevention and response.

I have been a close supporter of EVAW Inc for some years now as I found that their knowledge and expertise are second to none. Their work and endeavours is based on a passion to assist & educate as many as possible but in my belief, not for monetary gain. The impact of this is best illustrated in how I could adapt & utilise this knowledge to enhance and develop my own work as a law enforcement officer. I regret that due to legislation, I am unable to cite specific incidents but I do know that knowledge gained through EVAW Inc was invaluable to me in time of crisis. EVAW Inc are change-agents and are leaders within their field therefore I would have no hesitancy in recommending EVAW Inc as a Forum of Best Practice to anyone or any agency in the field.

EVAW provides a variety of opportunities of learning along with extended an invitation to an upcoming conference event next month of which I would have not otherwise been able to attend due to our agencies budget issues. I feel honored to have been given the opportunity to attend and volunteer at such an event.

I have gained insight and have shared this site with others who have also stated that the site is awesome, easy to understand and gives additonal resources on available training. EVAW is an awesome agency that not
only is victim centered but allows for agencies to put into place ideas for multi disciplanary practices to better serve others.

EVAW, Inc. has been instrumental in educating myself and others in the field of violence against women. On a regular basis, I utilize EVAW's educational resources to enhance my skills as a sexual assault nurse examiner. On a more personal note, EVAW's director has been instrumental in helping to set up a SART team in our rural community, bringing law enforcement, social workers. advocates and nurses together to better care for the members of our community.

As a prosecutor whose caseload consists entirely of cases of domestic violence, I have had occasion to use professional materials generated by EVAW and attend EVAW conferences several times over the years. I have found EVAW to be consistently excellent in its ability to bring together great trainers, create truly helpful materials, and (re-)energize professionals working to end violence against women.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my office (in that they provide me with materials to help me better hold offenders accountable and keep victims safe) and at conferences in St. Paul and Washington.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

consider expanding their ability to provide on-site technical assistance to professionals in the Violence Against Women field.
