NOTE TIME CHANGE!!
Please join OVWA and Stefanie Day, EdD, PCC-S, OVWA Board Past President, for Gratitude and Reframing our Work in Advocacy. Taking care of ourselves as advocates can be the last thing we spend time on but. in fact, is the most important action we can take. With an emphasis on self-care in the past several years, what are we missing? In our day-to-day crisis-driven roles, it is easy to overlook the gifts we are given throughout our days, reminders of our successes and meaningful roles as advocates. This training will look at the ways in which we can reframe our understanding of advocacy and intentionally begin to recognize and receive gratitude from others, incorporating this into our work and strengthening our resilience. This webinar is pre-approved for 1.5 CEU‘s from the State of Ohio CSWMFTB and OVWA training programs are pre-approved through both the Ohio Advocate Network and the National Advocate Credentialing Program. If you require accommodations, please email us at info@ovwa.org no later than one week prior to the webinar.

Join ODVN during Black History Month as we discuss creating intentional space for necessary conversations about racism. White supremacy is an oppressive tool deeply rooted in our societal systems, including our policies, communities, and even our own organizations. It is well beyond time that we address the everyday ways that racism pervades the experiences of Black, Indigenous, People of Color who are survivors and learn the skills to have necessary conversations to confront oppressive policies, language, and actions.

Esteemed experts and panelists in this training will lay the groundwork for starting and holding conversations about racism within our professional spaces. Participants will learn best-practices to use their positions of privilege and power to challenge both systemic and internalized racism and move through the discomfort that may arise. Instead of being paralyzed, you will become empowered to create change.

Cost: Free for ODVN Members (ODVN Member Program or Individual/Organizational Membership); $25 for Non-ODVN Members. ***Note: If paying by check, please include the name of the training on the memo line.
