Help Raise Awareness with the Sudbury Wolves

January 31, 2020

Event date: 1/31/2020 7:05 PM - 9:30 PM Export event

In November, VOICES FOR WOMEN Sudbury Sexual Assault Centre was excited to once again partner with the SUDBURY WOLVES to deliver the annual OHL ONSIDE workshop to the coaching staff and players.  VOICES FOR WOMEN, along side the Sudbury Wolves, hope to create an environment for conversations to take place about Violence against Women (VAW) within their sport and to provide their players with tools to eliminate the “bystander effect”.  

On January 31, 2020, VOICES FOR WOMEN will host an awareness campaign during a SUDBURY WOLVES game to promote the OHL ONSIDE initiative, generate awareness about Violence against Women, and promote VOICES for Women to further spread this message.

What is OHL ONSIDE? 

OHL ONSIDE is a leading edge initiative between the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) and the Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres (OCRCC). The OHL ONSIDE program is aimed at increasing the understanding and awareness of the player’s responsibility to demonstrate respect for women through their actions and words. This project has been developed as a two hour workshop with opportunity for personal development and ongoing leadership as young men in the Ontario Hockey League. This initiative will see the Ontario Hockey League as leaders in promoting the importance of respectful relationships between young men and women in their communities.
