The Yukon advisory council on women’s issues, the women’s directorate and the Liard Aboriginal Women’s Society are hosting a forum in Whitehorse next week.
The two-day event will focus on issues of interpersonal violence at home, at work and in the community.
It will take place Sept. 12 and 13 at the Westmark Whitehorse Hotel.
“Violence against women affects everyone and therefore requires collective action,” Minister Elaine Taylor, responsible for the women’s directorate, said. “Investing in the women’s forum builds on Yukon government’s commitment to explore creative solutions collaboratively to respond to violence against women in the North.
The forum is free and open to all Yukon women.
