How Do I Know If I'm Ready to Consent?

Thu, Sep 23 from 7pm - 9pm (Pacific)

This event has passed.

Consent is more than saying "yes" or "no" to something. We first need to know if we want it; if we're ready to even consider moving forward. For some, this is easy. For others of us, it's not, and it gets more complicated all the time. This is true around issues of sex, sexuality, and relationships. And it's just as true around issues of work, parenting, friendships, and many other parts of life.

Join our consent experts as we discuss ways to explore the internal questions around consent. We'll look at how you can know when you're ready to move forward, ways you can clarify when you're not, and what to do if you can't make up your mind. We'll explore how to engage better communication and strategies for telling people when you're not ready. And we'll look at the tricky parts of moving from being unsure to either stating your boundaries or giving affirmative consent. 


This class is for everyone, but especially those who have ever wondered if they're ready to move forward with something.
