This training session goes through the process and skills needed to feel confident and empowered to Call It Out against any situation where someone is being victimised. Whether within your friendship group, in a seminar, or with strangers, we will explore different ways you can safely intervene to help the person being targeted and if appropriate address the unacceptable behaviour and to start to make a change of our culture at UEA for the better. We can all make an impact by Calling It Out whenever we can.

Consent matters is for students of all genders and sexualities to help build a better campus community. Sex isn't for everyone, but everyone can benefit from learning about consent. It's important for everyone to understand consent so that we can look out for each other and live in safer, happier communities.
