Consent in the Workplace

Sun, Nov 29, 2020 from 2pm - 4pm

This event has passed.

We often think of consent as something outside of work; something sexual or only related to sexual harassment. Yet we know that a workplace founded on a culture of mutual respect, open communication, and accountability can be more efficient and productive, better led, and safer for all. Incorporating consent into the workplace helps employees feel confident in their workplace relationships, eases stress, and allows employees to focus on their work. Ultimately, it’s about creating safer environments with higher employee retention, fewer HR complaints, and more happiness.

During this session our panelists will discuss what consent looks like in a work environment, how to create more consensual work environments, and some of the difficulties that come up.

Sar Surmick - Seattle - Director of the Consent Academy
Gwen Snyder - Philadelphia - Writer, Consultant, & Strategist
Rosa Robada- Oakland - Burlesque Dancer, Model, Grassroots Activist
Kat Murti - Executive Director of Feminists for Liberty
Amanda K. Rue - Founder & CEO, The Shift/Work Shop
