There is a growing awareness of the impact that IPV can have on a workplace- for survivors of violence, individuals who perpetrate violence, coworkers, and managers.

PATHS is working with a Steering Committee comprised of members from unions, crown corporations, non-profit, government, policing, and survivors of violence.

As part of this project, a pilot is being conducted with employees of SGEU (Saskatchewan Government and General Employees’ Union) to review policies, procedures, and contract language to better support individuals experiencing IPV.

PATH is the leader in global health innovation. An international nonprofit organization, we save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations—that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.

The PATHS program is a certificate training program to prepare students for a career of Direct Support Professionals (DSP-G), Direct Support Para-Professionals (DSP-P) and Child Care Professionals (CCP.) After completing two semesters at the Center on Disability and Development, participants earn a certificate that combines classroom instruction with practical career building experiences. 

The Bridge to Career program takes place the summer before entering in the fall semester. This 4-week program is a prerequisite to participate in the PATHS Program. This program serves as a college boot camp of sorts. During this 4-week summer semester, students are learning how to navigate independently within the Texas A&M community, acquire basic study skills, self-advocacy skills, self-determination skills, and learn about supports available to them.

A student in the Direct Support Professional - Paraprofessional (DSP-P) career track is trained to support teachers and students in the classroom.  A DSP-P can be employed by school districts or other educational facilities.
