2022 Trainings

We have a full slate of learning opportunities in 2022, including expansions and updates to foundational trainings and explorations of timely and more advanced topics. Please see our individual offerings from January to June 2022 below, and stay tuned for updates. 

Registration for our trainings opens 6-8 weeks in advance of the training. In addition to our upcoming events, we host two ongoing training groups that meet regularly throughout the year: New Directors University (NDU) & WE LEAD.

We also provide an as-requested training called Providing Inclusive Services to LGBTQ Victims & Survivors, free to member programs of End Abuse and the WI Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA), as well as to their collaborating partners.

For some trainings, coalition members will be given priority registration and non-members will be put on a waitlist when space is limited.

DV Homicide Support Group: GRACE
GRACE: Growing Resilience Among the Circle of Empowerment

End Abuse recently launched a free, virtual support group to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for WI adults to be with others who’ve experienced the loss of a loved one due to domestic violence homicide. It meets the 2nd Thursday of each month from 7pm – 8:30pm, and follows a peer-to-peer support rather than therapeutic/clinical approach. Learn more and register here.

New Directors University

In this year-long workshop, new directors from around the state gather to discuss important aspects of leadership and service provision to victims of domestic violence. Areas covered include working with the board of directors, grant writing, budgeting and finance management, and community and organizational leadership. This group is open to new directors with 3 years and less experience, and promotes networking and connections. The application process is now closed for the 2021 session.  For information about applying for upcoming years please email kathrync@endabusewi.org or oliviao@endabusewi.org.

WE LEAD

WE LEAD is a yearlong leadership academy which focuses on building new voices of leadership within the movement to end gender-based violence by providing hands-on leadership development opportunities for survivors of violence and/or people from Wisconsin’s underserved or under-represented communities.

Applications for the 2020-2021 WE LEAD have closed.

Known dates for the cohort to meet are listed below. For more information about WE LEAD, go here or contact Danny Ho (dannyh@endabusewi.org) or Olivia Osborne (oliviao@endabusewi.org) with questions.
