Consent Educator Retreat
Consent in our culture is evolving, expanding, and something people need to learn about. Teaching about it requires an in-depth understanding of the complexities and nuance surrounding consent in today's world.
During this two and a half day retreat our experts will cover the following topics through discussion, exercises, and collaborative engagement:
* What is Consent: From the Basics to the Complexities
* Your Personal Relationship to Consent
* How to Talk about Consent in Context
* Managing Consent Complexity in Education
* Potential Problems & Issues with Teaching Consent
* Getting Started on Your Lesson Plans
This retreat is for people who already have some experience teaching/educating. We will help you turn the skills you already have towards this essential topic.
All sexes, genders, and identities 21 years of age or older are welcome.

Its 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.
