End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI) is pleased to announce that we will be holding the first of three 2013 Regional Training Conferences in Charlotte, North Carolina. This 2-day training will be held at the Westin Charlotte Hotel on Thursday, January 31 and Friday, February 1, 2013.These regional training conferences are designed to complement our international conference that we host once a year, as well as our OnLine Training Institute (OLTI) and webinar events, to offer a range of training options for professionals in the field. While the annual conference offers an incredible opportunity to hear from as many as 80 leading experts facilitating 48 workshops and 6 plenary sessions -- we continually receive requests to host regional training conferences on a smaller scale, to address the fundamentals of how to improve the investigation and prosecution of sexual assault and domestic violence. This is consistent with our mission as an organization, which is to inspire and educate those who respond to gender-based violence - with the goal of better supporting victims, holding perpetrators accountable, and ultimately make our communities safer.We encourage you to join us for a cutting edge opportunity highlighting:
Dynamics: What Does Sexual Assault Really Look Like?
Effective Report Writing: Using the Language of Non-Consensual Sex
Interviewing the Victim: Techniques Based on the Realistic Dynamics of Sexual Assault
Identifying and Implementing Innovative Investigation & Prosecution Strategies

Strengthening Military-Civilian Community Partnerships to Respond to Sexual Assault is an interactive two-day training that will help participants establish partnerships with local military installations in order to effectively respond to the needs of sexual assault victims in the military. Throughout this training, participants will build knowledge about military systems, protocols, and culture to improve service provision to military sexual assault victims and to develop an appreciation of the perspectives of their future collaborative partners. It is through this developing sense of awareness that civilians will begin to understand who the military Service Member is, the culture they need to live and operate in, what motivates him/her, and what the military victim needs when working with community-based advocates. With the knowledge gained through this training process, in combination with their existing expertise in sexual assault, participants will be able to serve as knowledgeable resources to military installations throughout the United States.
