Preventing Sexual Assault is a Leadership Imperative: Strategies for Engaging Young People

December 3, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Sexualized violence is an issue that impacts people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Currently, Saskatchewan has one of the highest rates of sexual victimization in Canada. The health implications of sexualized violence are broad as it can negatively influence mental health, substance use, sexual decision making, and the ability to thrive for those who experience it. Through education and leadership, prevention of sexualized violence is possible.

In this webinar, Jackson Katz will explore strategies for engaging youth in violence prevention and bystander intervention.

Free streaming of Katz’s film, The Bystander Moment, will be available the week of November 30 to December 6. More information to come.

Presenter

Jackson Katz, Ph.D.
About:

Jackson Katz, Ph.D., is an educator, author, and cultural theorist who is internationally renowned for his pioneering scholarship and activism on issues of gender, race and violence. In 1993 he co-founded the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program at Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society. The mixed-gender, multiracial MVP program is one of the longest-running and most widely influential sexual assault and relationship abuse prevention programs in high schools, colleges, sports culture and the military in North America and beyond. MVP introduced the “bystander” approach to the gender violence prevention field; Katz is one of the key architects of this now broadly popular approach.
