The Sexual Violence Education Team presents Let’s Get Consensual: Consent Workshop, which is intended to provide folks with the education, skills, and opportunities to understand and practice consent in a supportive and sex positive space. Some of the topics that folks can expect to engage in will include: consent (what it is, why it’s required, how to practice it), gender-based violence, safer spaces, sex positivity, power, and privilege. Through activities, discussion, and media, the workshop offers a chance for us to talk about all the ways we can provide safe, fun, and sexy ways to build relationships with the people we care about.

First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training

This training is intended to build the capacity of professionals, paraprofessionals, students, and community members to assess and respond effectively to disclosures of sexual assault and sexual abuse. Survivors who receive safe and supportive responses to disclosures of sexual violence are more likely to reach out for help from medical and counselling services and/ or report to police. First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training™ is a comprehensive two day training, inclusive of the full continuum of sexual violence and across the lifespan.
