OCTEVAW Meet & Greet

Curious about the future of OCTEVAW? Want to meet the new Executive Director and learn more about how you, or your organization, can get involved in creating violence-free futures?

What is the purpose of the event?

Join us for an afternoon of connection and engagement with Ottawa’s gender-based violence sector where you will get the opportunity to meet with Yami, OCTEVAW’s recently on-boarded Executive Director, members of the coalition’s network, and folks currently working to advance the GBV movement. The GBV movement has been a powerful voice for change and accountability within Ottawa’s change-making communities. Come on out and learn more about OCTEVAW’s key advocacy goals for 2024 including planned projects. We would love to meet you!

The event is being hosted at Chnge Mker Hub (44 Byward Market Suite 270) on Thursday March 14 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Light refreshments will be available. Available space is limited so we ask that you please register in advance.
