Davian Gagne, an experienced social worker and outreach director, has been named the gender violence prevention and education coordinator for the University of Colorado at Boulder, a new five-year position that was created as part of the Lisa Simpson lawsuit settlement.
Gagne, who has worked with the Moving to End Sexual Assault program in Boulder and the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment, began her appointment in July.
Davian Gagne will be working to help change the climate that produces things like gender violence."
Gender-based violence is violence directed against a person on the basis of gender, gender expression or sex, according to Gagne. While males and females are subject to it, women and girls are the main victims. Gender-based violence can include many things such as sexual harassment, sexual exploitation and discrimination based on gender.
"This is a great opportunity for CU to be a leader in terms of taking the initiative and addressing gender violence on campus," Gagne said.
Gagne said she is excited to come up with creative ways to engage the whole CU community and thinks the program is uniquely situated to do so.
"The program is unique because it is not housed within a women's center or another program, it is separate and autonomous," she said.
Gagne has extensive experience in education and prevention efforts dealing with gender violence. While working with the Moving to End Sexual Assault program she trained high school students to be prevention educators and give presentations to their peers about gender violence and heterosexism.
She has a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in social work from the University of Denver.

"There was definitely a pattern of women being drugged at a particular fraternity," said Davian Gagne, who leads gender violence prevention at the office.
That's because efforts haven't focused on how most rapes happen, says Davian Gagne, gender violence prevention coordinator for the University of Colorado at Boulder.
"If somebody is blowing a whistle, it's probably going to be in somebody's residence in a bedroom, and the likelihood of somebody intervening in that situation is pretty slim," Gagne said. She was hired in 2008 as part of the university's response to the high-profile sexual assault case involving Lisa Simpson and the university football recruiting program.
Gagne has been focused on a new prevention tactic being introduced at schools around the nation. It's called "bystander intervention."
The idea is to teach people to be aware of a bad situation as it develops and to intervene. For example, it might be stopping a friend who's had too much to drink from leaving a party with a potential attacker.
Studies have shown if roughly a third of the population becomes aware of something, that becomes a tipping point for changing attitudes and behaviors in a culture. So Gagne has been working to reach that point, and begin shifting attitudes and actions long before any whistle could be blown.
Pawlas, an instructor of mechanical engineering, worked with Gagne and others to develop a sexual assault and sexual harassment prevention program for engineering students.
