One Student co-founder Becca Tieder (@beccatalks) has traveled the nation addressing sexual assault, rape culture and gender norms. After speaking to over one million people, Becca has seen the ripple effect that follows after honest conversations about sexual assault, sex and relationships that are void of shame. This new program introduces conversation starters that encourage attendees to be better friends, partners and community members. We all have a role to play in creating a #consentculture and creating sexually empowered communities. From porn to purity rings there is tremendous pressure on people to meet sexual ideals. It’s time to have frank discussions about issues that may get in the way of expressing our own sexpectations and creating a #consentculture. Learning to turn our internal monologue into an external one: where we can express our feelings to partners and to build the skills to act on our gut instincts as an engaged bystander. This session encourages positive, open and honest conversations about sexual health to help create healthier relationships, engaged bystanders and communities that support survivors of sexual assault. This program opens the door to start powerful conversations and puts OneStudent.org tools to help shift campus culture in the hands of students who can transform their communities. Walk in with desire to make your relationships and communities better — walk out a sexually empowered social change agent.
