EAAA in the News

The Flip the Script with EAAA™ Train-the-Trainer stronger than ever!

In 2021 and 2022 we returned from a 2-year COVID hiatus and were able to host five Flip the Script with EAAA™ Train-the-Trainer workshops at the University of Windsor, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado and a French training in Montréal, Québec. We were so grateful that these amazing folks from Canada and the United States were willing and able to travel to be in-person with us. 2023 introduced us to more amazing people who are committed to bringing the program back to pre-pandemic levels on campuses globally.

Women who attended the May 2023 Train the Trainer

It has been a whirlwind of planning to host and train individuals from Canada (May 2023 - see photo) and Australia (January 2023). We are working on plans for our May 2024 workshop along with on-going work supporting the research on our teen and online adaptation.  

Thank you to everyone who participated and those who have started or restarted implementation of the Flip the Script with EAAA™ program at their institutions.
