SHIFT is a two-day national conference to confront the crisis of violence against women and cultivate healthy masculinity.

Through expert speakers, engaging workshops, and discussions that cause us to think differently, the SHIFT conference will challenge the elements of our culture that contribute to violence against women. This conference will have community, faith, and athletic tracks for attendees to select.There will be specific sessions dedicated to Title IX, how to inform and collaborate with your community around intimate partner violence, feminism in sports, and many more. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of sexual harassment laws and legislation, as well as best practices to engage boys and men to be a part of the solution to end intimate partner violence.
