Best Practices in Reducing Gender-Based Violence

April 19, 2016 - April 23, 2016

The Cleveland Council on World Affairs is proud to be hosting visitors from India for the program “Best Practices in Reducing Gender Based Violence.” Visitors’ experiences in Cleveland will illuminate the intersection of gender-based violence with training for medical professionals and first responders to accurately respond to instances of GBV,  the role of the judicial system in matters of GBV, the rehabilitation process for abuse offenders, and women’s empowerment and skill building.

Visitors will attend and participate in meetings with organizations, programs, and individuals, potentially including Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Training at the Cleveland Clinic, the Cleveland Police Domestic Violence Unit, the Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court, and Laura’s Home Women’s Crisis Center.

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields.  Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program. 

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
