Application for the Position of Gender-Based Violence Counsellor

Dear Human Resources Manager,

When I learned about the position of Gender-Based Violence Counselor at WCWRC, I knew that this is the opportunity I have been waiting for.

I have over 6 years of international clinical and field experience in the areas of GBV counseling and research. In addition, I have carried out over 10 years of community-based work with women, children, and LGBTQ+ groups affected by violence and discrimination in North America and Africa.

While completing my Bachelor of Peace and Conflict Studies, I enriched my global understanding of gender-based violence through practical experience with survivors of violence through a North American perspective and while doing so, upgraded my knowledge of Canadian and Manitoba-specific policies, legislation, and regulations affecting response to any form of violence. Furthermore, while completing my Master of Psychology in Coercive Control, I focused on theories of violence intervention/prevention and restorative justice such as creative-narrative therapies.

Being a colored new-immigrant woman to Canada and Winnipeg, I have first-hand experience of the challenges and barriers that newcomers and refugees can face while integrating into Canadian society. Besides my specialization in gender-based violence and counseling skills, I possess a unique capacity to converge the diverse skills acquired from my multi-dimensional educational and work background. Consider the following highlights that are valuable to this position: 

  • A nuanced understanding of gender-based violence and its impact on different vulnerable groups
  • Extensive experience in maintaining casework, drafting safety plans, and co-creating multi-party solutions
  • Experience in counseling participants with low English levels
  • In-depth knowledge of referral resources and strong community ties in Winnipeg (government, student groups, community-based/faith-based/cultural/non-profit organizations, human rights advocates)
  • Cross-cultural competency acquired in 11 countries (South Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe) for work, education, and leisure
  • Evolved communication and interpersonal skills using the approaches of conflict resolution and transformation

Moreover, my extensive global experience in GBV response is significantly relevant to the kaleidoscopic "multi-cultural" Winnipeg society.

Please find attached my resume for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours faithfully,

Anamika Anwesha
