Consent and Leadership 6: Harm Creates Responsibility: A Guide to Consent Incidents

Wed, Aug 30, 2023 from 10am - 12pm (Pacific)

This event has passed.

When harm occurs, the last thing you want to do is cause more harm. 

This workshop gives insight and skills for responding to a consent incident without causing additional harm; focusing on how to get information in a compassionate, trauma-informed way. We’ll cover the basics of interviewing and evaluating an incident. If you're in a position where you might find yourself responsible for supporting people and deciding what to do in the immediate aftermath of a consent incident, this class is for you.

Who is the Consent and Leadership Series for?

Anyone in formal and informal positions of leadership who finds their work expanding to include issues around consent, such as ethics, interpersonal conflict, and harm. If you host events, teach, organize, manage, or supervise people; if you are just the one people go to when a problem around consent comes up; if you care about creating consensual spaces and have some power to influence others — then this series is for you.
