Violence prevention campaign honoured

The Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women & Children (CREVAWC) recently won a top honour in the fourth annual Avon Global Communications Awards, which recognize outstanding communications campaigns designed to help end violence against women. The awards consist of five categories, and are part of Avon’s Speak Out Against Violence campaign.

The centre was selected as the winner of the Innovative Campaign category for its Make it Our Business Campaign, which uses videos, webinars, blogs and online modules to provide education and training to workplaces on recognizing and responding to domestic violence. Since its inception in 2010, the Make It Our Business campaign has provided training to more than 500 Canadian workplaces.
