On October 13, 2017 the SFU Sexual Violence Support & Prevention Office will be hosting an awareness raising event in Convocation Mall titled #ItTakesAllOfUs. This event is a call to action to help us in fostering a culture of consent and respect at SFU.

Graduate students have an important role to play in fostering this culture change, with many already actively engaged in research and advocacy in this area. As such, the GSS is inviting graduate students who are doing research in the areas related to sexual violence support and prevention to create mini-posters, which will be displayed at the GSS table during the event.

These mini-posters (approx 11x17 inches) can be designed however you choose and should highlight the key takeaways from your work, whether those are the key findings or the key areas where more work still needs to be done. The goal of this event is to highlight the work graduate students are already doing in this area and to bring them together in the spirit of culture change.

We would also invite those graduate student researchers to attend the event on the 13th, where we will be doing a networking event at our table from 3-4pm. This will be a great opportunity for graduate students to meet others who are doing research in this area, as well as those who are on the front lines of the education and prevention work that is currently taking place here at SFU. All graduate students are also invited to attend the event to show their support in fostering a culture of consent and respect at SFU.

Poster can be submitted electronically to ur@sfugradsociety.ca by October 12th at 11am.
