How to Manage Consent Risk
Sat, Jan 19, 2019 from 1pm - 4pm
Consent is complicated. There are many different aspects to it. And it can be hard to know how to protect yourself from both committing a consent violation or from having one commited against you.
We're going to look at different aspects of consent, explore related risk factors, and talk about how to manage them. While there is no way to reduce risk to 0 when intereacting with another human being, there are many ways to both understand and reduce the consent risks we face. Together we'll work on what risks you might be facing and how to lower that risk.
This is a new curriculum. Handouts will be provided. Please bring your own situations and questions to share. We will be discussing issues of a sexual nature. This workshop is for both people concerned about ways to reduce their risk of consent violation and for people concerned about the risk of upholding the consent of others.
No late entry will be allowed due to the nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
Open to all 18+ Attendance is limited to 30 people.
Water available. Please bring your own bottle or cup. No disposable cups will be provided.
All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexualities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, religions are welcome and celebrated.
