Workshops and Drop-ins

Supporting Survivors: Responding to Disclosures of Sexual Violence Workshop

What does it mean to take a disclosure? When talking about sexual violence, is there a difference between disclosures and reporting? What support options exist for the campus community? We understand that responding to a disclosure can be difficult. That’s why we encourage everyone to join us for a conversation about how to respond to sexual violence disclosures and learn how to have a positive impact on survivors. To register for one of these workshops, please email svsupport@durhamcollege.ca.

  • January 26th 11 a.m.
  • February 23rd 11 a.m.
  • March 23rd 11 a.m.
  • April 6th 11 a.m.

Yes Means Yes

What is Yes Means Yes?

The Yes Means Yes campaign is dedicated to building a safe and inclusive campus, free from all forms of sexual violence. Through sessions and events, educational campaigns, and student outreach the Yes Means Yes campaign strives to foster conversation on consent and build a community of active bystanders.

Yes Means Yes student advocates act as active role models for the college community by educating students about sexual violence and the importance of consent. Volunteers assist with events such as Kiss with Consent, Sexual Violence Awareness Week and the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence event in addition to encouraging peers to contribute to the conversation on eliminating sexual violence.
