Jo-Anne Dusel Recognized with RESOLVE Award

Jo-Anne Dusel is recognized for her dedication to creating communities safe from violence and abuse.

Jo-Anne Dusel received the RESOLVE Saskatchewan Excellence in Community Service and Research Award at this year’s PATHS Conference, “Regrouping and Recharging: Gathering to Create Sustainable Change,” which took place October 19-20 in Regina, SK.

The award was established in 2015 to showcase the outstanding contributions of community members. Jo-Anne had initially been chosen in 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, could not be presented with it until the PATHS 2022 Conference. 

Jo-Anne was chosen because of her life-long commitment to working to end violence against women by advocating for change directed at policy, education, and and direct services. After over twenty years working with the Moose Jaw Transition House, in 2014 Jo-Anne became Executive Director of PATHS, providing support and guidance to the 23-member domestic violence shelters and agencies along with related organizations and services throughout the province. She has enabled significant change at the practice level and at the structural level, and is often consulted by the media on issues related to intimate partner violence.

Through collaborations and consultations with folks of all backgrounds in ways that always place survivors at the centre, Jo-Anne continues to impact on the lives of those who have experienced violence throughout Saskatchewan. Congratulations, Jo-Anne!
