Sun, May 2 from 11am - 2pm (Pacific)
We’re fond of saying, “Consent is Complex.” Here are some questions that prove it: Is an interaction consensual if you get a “yes” by offering something the other person wants? How might you go about making sure such a transaction is actually consensual? How much influence does power, privilege, or coercion have in such a case? There are many types of transactional consent. You’ve probably engaged in one or two today. Do you get paid for the work you do? Have you paid someone or bartered goods for a service? Are you in a relationship where one of you has more money or access to certain goods or services (like healthcare) where the other does not? While none of these ensure consent, they all have an influence.
Join us for an in-depth look at this particular consent complexity. This workshop will be a mix of information, discussion, exercises, and scenarios. Bring your thoughts, questions, and curiosity.
