Relationship Violence Toolkit for Educators
During #DVAM2020 the University of Utah’s Gender-Based Violence Consortium partnered with Fight Against Domestic Violence to create the “Relationship Violence Toolkit for Educators.” The toolkit is for educators, where content is organized to include suggestions for teaching from those new to the issues (101) to those more advanced in their knowledge (201 and 301).
The Gender-Based Violence Consortium at the University of Utah brings together an interdisciplinary team of scholars representing multiple colleges across campus. The consortium is an inter-professional collaboration, a campus scholarly network that embodies an academic commitment to sharing knowledge, supporting long-term collaborations through research hubs, creating programming, sharing teaching and responding to gender-based violence in Utah.
The mission of Fight Against Domestic Violence is to generate resources for domestic violence survivors and service providers through corporate, individual, and community partnerships.
Special acknowledgements to the authors and co-creators of the toolkit: Brooke Muir (Fight Against Domestic Violence), Heather Harris, Dr. Jessie Lynn Richards (University of Utah), Dr. Annie Isabel Fukushima (University of Utah), and Diane Le Strain (University of Utah).

Research and Publishing during Covid-19
Tuesday, November 10th
12:00 – 1:00 pm MST
This discussion will explore the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on scholarly research and publishing. Travel restrictions, retracted funding, delayed or halted projects, and an increase in caretaker and other personal responsibilities at home compound to create unprecedented challenges for producing and publishing research. Early indicators show women, those with significant unpaid care responsibilities, and members of minoritized groups have been disproportionately impacted. For graduate students and early career faculty who depend on research and publication for promotion and tenure, the stakes are especially high. Join our panelists for a conversation about the how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the research landscape.
