Everyone has an opportunity to lead change.

There is an overwhelming ‘shadow pandemic’ of violence against women and gender-diverse people. Gender-based violence is the type of violence women, girls, non-binary, trans, and Two Spirit people are most at risk of facing.

It’s time to level up and expand your impact. The Leading Change Expansion Pack is now available to help men better understand their role and opportunity to make the world a better place.

If you are looking for a way to get involved, start here!
