GRW works with international partners, most often NGOs, to provide an array of customized trainings on bettering responses to violence against women and girls. We work with international and domestic partners to offer trainings to law enforcement, legal professionals, government representatives, NGOs, and more, that are adapted to the international context and controlling legal framework. All trainings are grounded in local advocacy and the lived experiences of women and girls in those countries.

Members of the GRW staff have been working in the violence against women field for decades and are tireless in their efforts to ensure that our network of partners has consistent access to the current best practices and developments happening across the globe on bettering responses to violence against women. With this in mind, GRW partners with numerous individuals, groups, and organizations to bring about legal reforms and systems change. Our partnerships take various forms; some are more formalized through contracts or funded grants, while others are less formal collaborations with nongovernmental organizations, government and US Embassy contacts, or local partners and experts on violence against women.
