Using a participatory approach, our workshops actively engage learners and spark meaningful conversations relevant to their lives and communities.
Our workshops are ideal for classrooms, lecture halls, residence halls, after-school programs, and community groups.
This workshop provides participants with a foundational knowledge of what sexual violence is and discusses what effective bystander intervention looks like. There will be an opportunity to explore how you can intervene, and what the effects are of different intervention tactics.
Sexual Violence Culture/ Sexual Harassment
In this workshop participants will learn about sexual violence, including sexual harassment. The conversation will include how different actions, behaviours, attitudes and beliefs contribute to a culture of sexual violence.
What does a healthy relationship actually look, sound, and feel like? What are “red flags” that someone may be trying to control or harm us? This workshop explores the characteristics of healthy, unhealthy, and abusive relationships.
Talking about consent doesn’t need to be awkward! Through a conversation on what consent is, what barriers exist in creating a culture of consent, and how to apply consent practices in sexual and non-sexual contexts, participants will learn ways to incorporate consent into their daily practices.
Masculinity and Gender Stereotypes
“Man up.” “Act like a lady.” Statements like these are heard every day and push people into boxes based on their gender. This workshop examines some of the ways in which gender-based stereotypes impact our relationships with ourselves and others.
Intro to Male Allyship
What does it mean to be an ally? In this workshop, participants will learn about the process of allyship, including understanding our own power and privilege, and tangible steps we can take to support survivors of sexual violence.
Online pornography has become widely available and is relatively easy for people of all ages to find. In this workshop participants will discuss the role pornography is playing is shaping people’s understanding of sexuality and sexual health, consent, sexual violence and more. We will also explore ethical porn production, and the concept of feminist porn.
Homophobia/transphobia are commonly used as tools to control and constrain masculinity. Participants will discuss masculinity through a queer and trans lens, and look at strategies to open up the conversation surrounding gender, as well as ways to not recreate toxic masculinity in LGBTQ+ communities.
