Knowing that education is the best form of prevention against gender-based violence (CDC, 2016), please join us in a discussion of the University of Lethbridge’s process of updating the Sexual and Gender-Based Violence Policy, the newly mandated training for students, and furthering education to prevent gender-based violence at our institutions.
