The Center for the Study and Prevention of Gender Based-Violence at the University of Delaware is hosting its inaugural national conference, “Equitable Approaches: Addressing Gender-Based Violence through Scholarship, Advocacy, and Activism” September 28 -29, 2023 in Newark, Delaware. Gender-based violence is a complex and pressing social problem that demands interdisciplinary, intersectional solutions. And, though gender-based violence touches all communities, those with marginalized identities experience higher rates of nearly every form of gender-based violence. Thus, the “Equitable Approaches” conference centers the experiences of marginalized peoples through keynote speakers, plenary sessions, and “conversations that matter,” which are designed as intimate spaces where participants can engage with high-impact and innovative interventions and prevention strategies. The “Equitable Approaches” conference brings together researchers, practitioners, and policy experts from all sectors and creates space to engage in conversations and share research and best practices that utilize intersectional and interdisciplinary approaches to ending gender-based violence.
