Consent Awareness Training

Consent Awareness is a trained skill, get the building blocks with our C.A.T!

This course is offered in person as well as online. Send us an email to schedule or purchase our online course.

The Consent Awareness Training is designed to go over the basics of Consent Culture and is more of an educational tool. We have courses that are designed for other aspects but you will receive a basic understanding of these here.

Having a common understanding of consent terms is important to have the conversations necessary to grow a community. Consent affects all aspects of life and is not just a sexual conversation. Understanding consent in every day context as well as how it permeates throughout society will help build strong communities centered around effective communication.

In this course we go over terminology, statistics, rape myths, as well as non sexual consent. We go over power dynamics within work and community and how they can be violations of consent.  The consent awareness training is meant to be a foundation to our other courses that go into more detail depending on the aspect of consent you are focused on.  Throughout this course we will have interactive writing prompts and survey’s that help us gather more data and use it to update courses accordingly.

How to use this course

The Consent Awareness Training is great for professionals in Human Resources departments, leaders of organizations, event producers that provide safe spaces, and  businesses , Universities, and social services. This course gives you the foundation to think critically, make decisions, and create consent culture atmosphere.

Designed to be a part of our certification program this course runs about 3-5 hours.

We are still developing new courses so be sure to ask about a course if you don’t see it on our services page!

Industry Consent Training

All industries have their “oh well that’s just the way it is” attitude towards a lot of things that happen around the office. This Industry Consent Training is aimed to stop that attitude. With proper consent training your employees will have the knowledge to understand each other and work more efficiently in a safe environment.

This training goes over the building blocks of consent for the staff as well as management. Putting effective policies into place to protect all parties including the business, when followed properly.

This training is usually paired with our Consent and Sexual Harassment Policy but we can also modify the one in use if you have one.  Industry Consent is different across the board but the building blocks remain the same. Our Consent Awareness Training is a great starting point but the I.C.T brings those differences and allows the staff to explore what that is and how it affects their co-workers. If your employees are made to feel safe at work knowing there is a standard held, it will help your business tenfold. Loyal employees are hard to find because of mismanagement. People do not quit jobs, they quit people. Their boss, coworker, or even that customer that comes in just to harass them. Build trust within your company and learn how to be an effective leader for your business.

Courses

Active Listening

Active listening is a skill that you use when talking with someone. It’s a skill that allows you to help the person come to their own conclusions without influence. When you practice this listening technique you find you repeat what the other person is saying often or use words like

“what I am hearing is..”

In this course you will learn about active listening and how to use it in your work or everyday life. This course is meant to compliment our Bystander Training Course and is focused on this technique only. A very interactive course to help you learn the critical thinking skills needed to asses any situation you’re in.  Writing prompts help get the mind flowing while our survey’s allow us to assess data. Using this data helps us update our courses so it is always up to date! Please be sure to visit our Services page to get an idea of all the different courses and services we offer.

You can practice active listening whenever someone has an issue or challenge they are trying to work through. Although we often want to give our perspective, and it is valuable, we need to think before we offer any advice at all in some context. This course covers active listening in the context of active bystanders, our pillar program, and consent violations. These include situations that occur at your event, festival, organization, etc.  where you need to get as much information as possible to help in the situation. We will go over scenarios in which giving advice can be substituted with giving resources and the power of just listening.

Consent for Universities

So you want to start a consent committee at your school but are unsure how to go about it. Or you are a faculty member that wants to be better equip to support your students in Consent Culture for Universities. You are in luck! We offer a lecture that is interactive and solution oriented so you can start implementing Consent Culture in your community.

We start off talking about what consent it, some key terms, and dive into some examples with interactive writing prompts. Our “Active listening” is a course we will go over to give everyone a better understanding of how to listen and not respond in an emotional way. Continuing with a forum, gathering information from those in attendance, and form solution oriented thinking to solve their issues, together.

We have other trainings that can be bundled together for a 2 or 3 day intensive. All hands on trainings and lectures that will inspire your staff and students alike.

There are a few other aspects to this in person interactive lecture but are also offering this over zoom as a digital alternative.

If you want to have this at your University please reach out to us on consentsultureinitiative@gmail.com
