Barb McQuarrie develops and promotes evidence based education and
prevention initiatives involving both community-based and university-based
partners. She has presented to a wide variety of audiences locally,
nationally and internationally about gendered violence and strategies to
address it. She has published in numerous journals, created on-line
trainings and produced films on topics related to violence and abuse.
Barb coordinated the first national Canadian study on the impacts of
domestic violence on workers and the workplace. Barb is a recipient
of the Order of Ontario, the province’s highest official honour, recognizing
individual excellence and achievement.

Due to the very sensitive nature of this topic, space and support will be
available to any member who requests this during the conference.
