SPARK: Survivor-led Practices for Awareness, Respect, and Knowledge

Our SPARK corporate certification is a unique training program that certifies your team in:
Defining and recognizing gender-based violence (including domestic and intimate partner violence)
Supporting colleagues who may be experiencing or perpetrating gender-based violence

Program Design

SPARK is a two-day comprehensive workshop delivered to your workforce by WomenatthecentrEโ€™s trained facilitators. These interactive sessions will provide participants with a foundation to:

  • Better understand gender-based violence (GBV) within the systemic and workforce contexts, train folks to understand, address and prevent GBV in the workplace
  • Provide guidance on how to foster a trauma-informed workplace
  • Offer tools to effectively engage and support survivors and address harm, and
  • Support team members in understanding and practicing self-care, community care and advocacy.


Standard level is attained once 70% of your workforce is certified.

Shortened non-certification training
