Building Prevention Leadership: PreventConnect 2011 web conferences

For its sixth year of web conferences to advance the prevention of sexual and domestic violence, PreventConnect is announcing its 2011 schedule of interactive, candid conversations where participants learn and share with peers and national experts committed to innovation in prevention strategy.

The theme for this year is “Building Prevention Leadership: Taking a Stand to Prevent Sexual and Domestic Violence.” The web conference series will emphasize building prevention capacity of prevention practitioners. Many of these web conferences will be lead by Prevention Institute, the national organization dedicated to bringing prevention to the center of community well-being. Below is a short video from Prevention Institute’s Annie Lyle and Christine Chang describing this year’s series.

This will include a series of lessons, “From Data to Prevention,” that show different approaches for using data to build the case for prevention. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will release the results of the National Intimate Partner Sexual Violence Survey in October 2011. PreventConnect’s web conferences will prepare prevention practitioners to use this and other surveillance, evaluation and experiential evidence in their work.

Along with the PreventConnect blog, Twitter feed, wiki and podcasts, these web conferences will bring together the PreventConnect community of prevention practitioners, trainers, researchers and funders, as everyone continues to strengthen the online discussion about prevention.
