Leadership Development

Strong organizations are built on leadership from everyone—directors, managers, advocates, and new people with fresh perspectives. Running a domestic violence program is a difficult job. Operating a shelter for survivors fleeing from abuse presents challenges in conflict management, supervising, and morale. Directors and managers can feel isolated and overwhelmed. WSCADV provides practical help and peer connection.

  • Regional Directors Meetings – Several regions in the state have well organized directors groups. We encourage directors to attend the meetings in their area – or travel to other regions to see what their peers are up to! Notices are sent out periodically to directors.
  • Shelter Managers – support and peer learning opportunities for those who are responsible for or assist in managing shelter programs. For additional resources please visit our Shelter Support page for additional resources.
  • People of Color & Native People gatherings provide training on leadership and support for organizations and the movement to end violence. Please check the Events section at the bottom of this page to see if one is currently scheduled or visit our upcoming events page for other opportunities.
  • New Directors Orientation are for directors that have been on the job for three years or less. Please check the Events section at the bottom of this page to see if one is currently scheduled or visit our upcoming events page for other opportunities.
