We want to hear from you!

Posted in SACE Announcements tagged at 5:57 pm by sacetalks

We would love to hear from you! The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton is currently undertaking a research project to help us improve. We will be working with an external marketing and communication firm to build our profile in the community.

Before that begins, we have engaged an independent research company to speak with stakeholders in confidential, one-on-one telephone interviews. Participants will be asked to comment on their perceptions of SACE, how SACE presents themselves and what challenges SACE currently faces in terms of misunderstandings in the community.

We are looking for people who have experience with SACE to participate in a 30 to 40 minute telephone interview. We want to assure you that your participation is completely voluntary and that the results of interviews will be reported in aggregate. Nothing you share with Johnston Research will be attributed back to you, nor will you be asked to share information on your personal experiences. If you are interested in participating in this research project, you can call Sandra Johnston, owner of Johnston Research, at 780-637-2878. She will be conducting interviews for the remainder of this week and over the long weekend. Interviews can be scheduled for morning, afternoon or evening. If you have any questions about this research project, you can call Sara Cameron, Director of Communications, at 780.423.4102.
