Consent & Leadership: Building Consent Ethos & Systems

Sat, Aug 21, 2021 at 10:30am

This event has passed.

A Consent Ethos is a statement of what you or your organization believes about consent: what it is, how it works, and why it’s important. Having one is essential to building a strong consent policy. It’s also incredibly useful when trying to explain consent and your practice of it to others. This workshop has exercises, questionnaires, discussions, everything you need to get started on building your own ethos. We’ll also look at what it means to hold a systemic lens and use that as the framework for building an ethos for your whole organization. 

3 Hour Online Zoom Workshop with Q&A throughout. Handouts and Zoom link will be emailed on the morning of the class.
