Event description

Description

Women and Politics presents, our Women Who Inspire series, October 2, 2017, featuring Dr. AnnaLise Trudell.

We are back!!!

This month we continue to weave together the stories of inspiring women leaders like AnnaLise Trudell, a Board Member of Women & Politics. AnnaLise is passionate about engaging youth around issues of gender, LGBTQ, sexual violence and community activism. Through her work at Anova (formerly Sexual Assault Centre London & Women's Community House) in public education, her research through her doctorate on girls' empowerment, her postdoctoral research on digital literacy and social inclusion for sex workers, and her self-identification as a proud queer femme feminist, she is driven to foster community dialogue that is hopeful and change-making.

As Director of Education, Training and Research at Anova, she brings extensive analysis of sexual violence and gender dynamics and is a seasoned public educator and facilitator with over 500 presentations engaging youth, professionals & post-secondary students through public education. She supports a staff team of 8 individuals who run dozens of youth violence prevention discussion-based groups every year. In her role as Postdoctoral Fellow at Western University, she seeks to amplify the voices of sex workers, offering a harm reduction sex positive approach to looking at the ways in which digital literacy can foster social inclusion and health for sex workers. Her volunteer roles as a Board Member of both Changing Ways and the London Intercommunity Health Centre allow her learn about other sectors and continue to develop her leadership capacities.

At our event we will also be updating you about our programs, initiatives and strategies and will continue challenging each of you to ask the inspiring women in your life to run for election next year.
