This event was hosted by the University of Victoria, Simon Fraser University, Capilano University, and the University of British Columbia. 

In this virtual panel discussion, three people with high-level athletic backgrounds--Brennan Bastyovansky, Georgette Reed, and Nangghaahlaangstangs--share their insights into sexual violence prevention and intervention in sport. They shared their stories and perspectives on how we can take bystander intervention from one moment of action to an ongoing practice.

This session addressed the following questions:

  • What can we do to overcome the discomfort of either intervening in the moment or providing ongoing support?
  • What can we do when a whole team is impacted by an incident or ongoing incidents of sexualized violence?
  • What is possible for teams when it comes to restorative practices such as accountability and community care?
