About Us

Who We Are

The Learning Network is committed to ending gender-based violence through knowledge mobilization that identifies gaps and emerging issues, establishes meaningful collaborations, and creates space for different ways of knowing. We value learning from lived experience, resistance efforts, grassroots advocacy, academic and community-based research, and groups that are marginalized by systemic structural violence.

What We Do

We develop evidence-informed resources, facilitate knowledge exchange, present webinars, and promote Ontario-based professional training and curriculums for the violence against women and allied sectors.

How We Do Our Work

Our work is informed by a Provincial Resource Group comprised of community leaders in ending gender-based violence. They provide expertise on research, curriculum development, intervention, and prevention.

We use an anti-oppression framework and strive to ensure that the principles of inclusivity and equity are evident in all our work.

Where We Are

The Learning Network is at the Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women & Children (CREVAWC) in the Faculty of Education at Western University. Western is in London, Ontario, on the unceded territories of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Lunaapeewak and Attawandaron peoples.
