The Consent Academy Presents: Consent for Leadership!

Wednesday February 27th AND Thursday February 28th, 2019, 6pm-10pm. Workshop is both days.

Consent in our culture is evolving & expanding. While consent seems like a simple topic, it has complexity that requires nuance and discretion.  Join The Consent Academy for this special immersive 8 hour workshop, designed specifically for CSPC members who hold leadership positions. Together we will create a safe space to unpack assumptions and concerns about consent, learn the nuances between incidents and violations, as well as identifying personal blind spots.  We will also teach you techniques for expertly handling reports of consent issues and implementing consent culture that works best for your community.

How do you know if this workshop is right for you?

Although we all need to be able to talk about consent in an open and honest way, this workshop goes beyond the basics. Consent for Leadership is best for those who have served on the Board of Directors, EC’s, Party Champions, Monitors, anyone interacting with members.  If you have specific questions, please feel free to email

Hosted by CSPC Board of Directors, snacks will be provided.

Presented by the Consent Academy:

The Consent Academy is a group of dedicated educators and activists who provide quality consent training and consultations. We have come together to promote Consent Culture through education, speaking out, and supporting organizations that want to do better. We talk a lot about consent and consensual activity. It’s the cornerstone of what we teach and who we are. And while that is easy to say, we know that living a dedication to consent takes work, awareness, and a willingness to engage.
