Global Innovation – Local (R)Evolution will feature international keynote presentations from New Zealand’s Hayley MacKenzie and the United Kingdom’s Christopher Straker, and the program is filling up with excellent workshop and training sessions, such as:

  • Indigenous Ways of Knowing: “Sacred Circles”
  • Working from a Victim-Centred Perspective: What, Why, and How?
  • The F Word: Exploring Forgiveness
  • Understanding Deep-Rooted Conflict, Structures of Violence & Power Imbalances
  • Circle Up! Using Circles and other Restorative Practices with Youth in Community and Educational Settings
  • Beyond Kale and Yoga: Strategies to Reduce Compassion Fatigue and Burnout as Teams and Individuals
  • Restorative Parenting: It’s Complicated


The objective of the event was to better understand why, despite Canada’s robust criminal laws related to sexual assault, rates of reporting, prosecution, and conviction remain low. The event also explored  how the criminal justice system’s responses to sexual assault could be improved. 

The summary of this event is now available online. You can access the document here:
