Davian Gagne
Davian Gagne A former social worker and outreach director, Davian Gagne has served on the Chinook Fund board for six years.

"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.
