Safer Action Planning Workshop for Staff and Faculty - 2 hours 

Thursday, May 11th 10:00AM -12:00PM 

We want to help faculty and staff members grow as leaders in gender and power-based violence prevention through our 2-hour Safer Action Planning Workshop. We'll delve into the root causes of gender and power-based violence and explore risk and protective factors for sexual violence perpetration. We'll create individual plans of how to integrate violence prevention activities into your specific position on campus. 

Trigger/Content Warnings  

Tuesday, May 16th 1:00PM-2:00PM

Have you ever wondered whether you should be using trigger or content warnings in your class or programming? This workshop discusses trigger warnings and their effectiveness vs. their potential to cause harm. Participants will have the chance to examine the impact of putting these warnings on their materials and consider multiple perspectives. We will look at recent research as well as feedback from Cal Poly students involved with the Safer program.
