An FST counsellor who has worked in the Violence Against Women (VAW) field for the last 20 years has been named as one of 2018’s Soul of a Warrior Awards recipients by the Woman Abuse Council of Toronto (ACT).
Congratulations to Vania Sukola, who was honored with the Leadership Award for her work as FST’s lead counsellor working with women labelled with intellectual disabilities and who have experienced violence. She was one of four women recognized by the council. Other recipients were Tashawna Thomas, Silvia Olivas and Victoria Roth.
“These ‘warriors’ are front-line staff working within the Violence Against Women sector who are recognized for their commitment to advocacy for improving the lives of women and children experiencing violence, the council said in a statement on its website.
