About the SARE Centre

The SARE Centre is a Canadian non-profit that facilitates the implementation of the Flip the Script with EAAA™ program. We provide Train-the-Trainer workshops to prepare (self-identified) women leaders from universities or community organizations to hire, train, and supervise local facilitators to offer the program in their own universities and communities. Founded in 2016 by Dr. Charlene Senn, our goal is to make the Flip the Script with EAAA™ program accessible to young women (and eventually young trans people) worldwide.
