As part of Project Shift, Creating a Safer Digital World for young women, YWCA Canada convened leaders from 13 ICT organizations, who lead work in diversity, inclusion, product, community development, safety, privacy and public policy. The members committed to move the needle forward on ending cyberviolence against young women by sharing and developing resources that advance a culture of empathy and accountability in the sector.
In collaboration with the roundtable members, YWCA developed a training for ICT sector workers complete with sharable tools, templates, and case studies that promote integrating a gender lens and understanding of sex discrimination in the work. The training has been piloted by one ICT organization thus far, with a few additional sessions planned for the spring of 2018. Rights Con offers a unique opportunity for YWCA to vet and test the content with subject matter experts, immersed in the digital inclusion and safety work.
What activities or discussions do you have planned?
Through this session, YWCA will present the content of the training and solicit feedback from delegates who would be interested in vetting or helping us to refine the training session. Participants will be encouraged to take on the role of an ICT sector worker, and to help YWCA strengthen the training.
During this session, YWCA will present the content of the training and the resources that have been developed. We will walk the participants through the training which is based on and experiential model that enhances empathy.
The key outcome is to reduce gendered cyberviolence. It will also enable us to expand the network of organizations and individuals. The results and feedback received through this session will directly impact YWCAs continued work in this area. YWCA welcomes input from participants to strengthen this training for the ICT sector post conference. With permission, any new ideas and suggestions will be incorporated into the next iteration of the training.
