Mandatory Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention Training

Why awareness and training matter

We have created mandatory sexual violence awareness and prevention training in our ongoing efforts to foster a safe and respectful environment at Concordia.

As our community continues to learn and grow, new modules will be added. Currently, two modules are offered to Students, Staff and Faculty, either as online training or in-person virtual workshops:

Introductory Module

The training in this first module is preventive in nature and explores the basics of sexual violence. A definition and examples of sexual violence is offered along with information and tools regarding consent, bystander intervention, and supporting survivors. Throughout the module, participants will engage with various scenarios. Finally, information on our policies and processes as well as internal and community resources is offered.

Systems of Oppression and Intersectionality

This second training module focuses on a root cause of sexual violence, systemic power and intersectionality. These concepts are presented to participants using a tool called the Anti-Oppression tree followed by various scenarios, allowing for deep exploration of the topic.

Creating a safe environment for everyone

Sexual violence awareness and prevention training is fundamental in creating a safe and supportive working and learning environment at Concordia and is a legal requirement as outlined by Bill 151.
