Donna Mertons gave a keynote address on Evaluation as a Transformative Strategy for Preventing Sexual Violence

Prior to the 2015 National Sexual Assault Conference last September, over 150 attended the National Sexual Violence Resource Center‘s RPE Leadership Training.  At this training, representatives of state and territorial public health departments and state and territorial sexual violence coalitions met with leadership from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Violence Prevention and attended several workshops and presentations, including a compelling keynote address from Donna Mertons on Evaluation as a Transformative Strategy for Preventing Sexual Violence.

For me the highlight of this training were the  “Ignite” talks – 6 minute presentations designed to inspire prevention work. These talked inspired and moved all us to to consider how to advance our prevention work.  Check out these talk:
