GBV Speakers

GBV Speakers, short for “Gender-Based Violence Speakers,” are individuals who play a crucial role in raising awareness about and addressing gender-based violence (GBV).

These speakers often have personal experiences or expertise in the field of GBV, allowing them to share their knowledge and stories to educate, inspire, and advocate for change.

GBV Speakers use their voices to break the silence surrounding issues like domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and discrimination, working to empower survivors and promote a more inclusive and equitable society. They may deliver presentations, participate in panel discussions, engage with communities, and collaborate with organizations dedicated to combating GBV, ultimately contributing to the collective effort to eradicate this pervasive problem.
