Organised by Student Services, this week-long virtual campaign of events launches the University's Sexual Violence and Misconduct (SVM) policy to get students (and staff) talking about all things sex: relationships, sexuality, consent, sexual health, sexual violence and more.
The whole event will be happening online and you will be able to:
- join ‘live’ sessions with subject experts
- attend ‘drop in’ advice sessions
- access pre-recorded content
- be signposted to further online resources
- submit questions anonymously via this slido (https://app.sli.do/event/4jpdktiv).
The aims of the week are to:
- launch and raise awareness of the University’s Sexual Violence and Misconduct (SVM) policy
- educate and raise awareness of sexual health, healthy relationships and the meaning of consent and SVM (including stereotypes, misconceptions and mythbusting regarding SVM)
- raise awareness of available internal and external support services
- raise awareness of how to report harassment, violence and assault (Speak Up)
- remove the stigma and normalise conversations around sex and relationships.
Themed days throughout the week will have guest speakers covering topics such as sexual health, relationships and consent and sexual violence.
A live drop in/Q&A session will take place every afternoon during the week and there will be number of interactive sessions via Zoom supported by local partners, including The Zone, Intercom Trust and First Light.
A link to the timetable for the week and information about how to access the content is available on the University's #TalkAboutSex intranet page (staff and student access only).
