About the SETA Conference

In 2018, RESET founded the Sexual Exploitation & Trafficking Awareness (SETA) Conference to empower organizations to share expertise in support of survivors and their families. 2023 marks our 5th SETA Conference with an exciting line up of Keynote Speakers and Workshops.

We look forward to bringing delegates from across North America to Calgary this year for this incredible event.
