I feel like I could give an entire talk on the subject of setting limits. It’s particularly relevant today, because it’s Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and I am working. In fact, I don’t know when the last time was that I took the High Holidays off. When you work for yourself, the reality […]

VAWnet has a new special collection available on Human Trafficking. Do I even need to say anymore that you should go check it out? I didn’t think so.

I am actually home for the next 2 weeks, which is pretty clutch at this point because, projects. And more importantly, deadlines. So my short jaunt to Korea is off the books and I am happily working away here in DC. A true luxury because I am entertaining for Rosh Hashanah this week and can actually attend […]

In the wake of the Ray Rice video there has been some spectacular reading dominating my Twitter feed. Certainly more than I can keep up with. I recommend checking out the entries under the hashtags #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft (and also #WhenILeft). They would make a great jumping off point for talks with your team about the realities […]

I woke up this morning at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington, very far from home and decidedly still on east coast time. I’ll be here for a hot minute before I move on to Billings, MT where we are rolling out a brand new IPV curriculum (super excited about that), so this week is a […]
