Working Group Callout for Sexual Violence Education and Prevention

Equity and Inclusive Communities (EIC) is looking for people to join working groups to help execute Carleton’s Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Plan. There are three working groups currently looking for members to join and offer their perspective – the Public Education and Training Working Group, the Communications and Communities Working Group and the Measurement Working Group. These working groups are gender inclusive and anybody who is interested is welcome to participate. The time commitment for these working groups would be 2 hours bi-monthly – with other projects and time commitments as a possibility for members who want to participate. EIC is seeking commitment to these working groups for one year.

The Public Education and Training Working Group will be focused on engaging more young men and others in the campus community to engage people in consent in a positive way, training bar staff, creating learning outcomes and assessments for community education opportunities, focusing on proactive prevention and consent culture by examining environmental scans of what other institutions are doing successfully on this front and how similar projects could be implemented at Carleton, and creating days and/or spaces for campus community to come together to collaborate on ending sexual violence, amongst other projects.

The Communications and Communities Working Group will be working to make sure services offered to survivors on campus are more inclusive of diverse genders and sexualities, integrate consent into Fall Orientation, focus on proactive prevention and consent culture by examining environmental scans of what other institutions are doing successfully on this front and how similar projects could be implemented at Carleton, as well as continuing to plan and execute public awareness education campaigns such as Sexual Assault Awareness Week and the #CUrious Campaign.

The Measurement Working Group will be focused on creating an intersectional-based needs assessment in order to gain survivors’ feedback about what they want and need, assessing whether current services on campus are inclusive of diverse genders and sexualities, creating learning outcomes and assessments for community education opportunities.

Please let us know if you’d like to be a part of helping to implement the Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Plan and what working group you’d like to be a part of by visiting the Sexual Violence Prevention Strategy page! To apply, email Bailey Reid, Senior Advisor on Sexual Violence at bailey.reid@carleton.ca with how you would like to contribute and what sexual violence prevention means to you.
