It’s Everybody’s Job: Building Safer Communities
Presenter: Suzette Walden Cole
Presenting Partner: CAMPUSPEAK
Program Description: Many students cannot clearly recognize the signs of potential risk in some situations, leading to them not realizing the risk at all or feeling too insecure to step in. In this keynote, Suzette offers students the training to confidently step in. She teaches the skills they need to be proactive, aware community members to help stop sexual assault and misconduct.
Goals: As a result of attending this program, students will learn:
- The history of alcohol and sexual assault/misconduct on college campuses.
- How to define and understand how to gain and secure consent.
- How to recognize reasons why individuals often do not intervene.
- How to overcome those factors, and techniques for safeguarding events (both unofficial and official).
- The skills to assess situations, determine a course of action, and step-in to ensure the safety and security of their community.
