Keynote Topics

From campuses, to workplaces, to our homes, there is an unprecedented dialogue in North America about sexual violence.

It’s time to explore how and what we  have been taught about relationships, sex and justice. How do we flirt, handle rejection, or say yes to ourselves?

What do we do when we have a crush, learn a friend has caused harm, or things get weird in a relationship and maybe feel unsafe?

From movie sets to bars to the boardroom, there is an unprecedented conversation about sexual harassment in the workplace happening in North America.

This interactive workshop is an opportunity to talk about sexual harassment and how the changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Act impact employees.

Self-care is the act of prioritizing one’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.

It’s perfectly normal to grapple with what it means to take care of yourself when your communities are continuing to face challenging systemic issues.
