A Campus Approach to Sexual Violence Prevention, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Mental Well-Being
Thursday, April 13 at 2:00 PM (ET) | 11:00 AM (PT)
Finding ways to create safe, respectful, creative campus communities for all.
As campus administrators and staff, we are tasked to create spaces where students, faculty, and staff can learn and work together without threat of sexual misconduct or dehumanization.
This webinar explores ways to prevent sexual misconduct for students and communities who have historically-oppressed identities by examining the frameworks, tools, and programs that consider the intersections of sexual violence prevention, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and mental well-being.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Provide intersectional frameworks to SVP, DEI, and MWB to guide institutional planning.
- Provide strategic tools and models that assess SVP, DEI, and MWB at a divisional level.
- Provide programming initiatives that weave together SVP, DEI, and MWB.
