Consent and Post-Secondary Athletics
Join us for Consent and Post-Secondary Athletics – A Conversation with Student-Athletes from across Atlantic Canada!
Join us on September 18th at 1pm (ADT) for Consent and Post-Secondary Athletics – a virtual panel discussion with current and recent student-athletes from the AUS or ACAA! In this conversation we’ll discuss power dynamics within athletics, toxic locker room cultures, sexual violence within athletics communities, opportunities for change, and so much more. We will also explore gaps and challenges related to consent within post-secondary athletics, and amplify student voices, experiences, calls to actions, and dreams for safer campus communities.
This event is one of three virtual panel discussions taking place during Consent Awareness Week 2023! Consent Awareness Week, established by Possibility Seeds and High School Too in 2022, takes place in the third week of September to recognize and raise awareness to the increase in sexual violence across post-secondary campuses during the first six weeks of a new academic year, which is known as ‘The Red Zone.’
