Event Details

Why are so many guys getting into trouble for bad behaviour against women?

 Do you feel confused about what is okay to say and what isn’t anymore?

You know you are a decent, respectful guy but can’t help but wonder why women cross the street when they see youcoming.  You get that women have learned to fear men but it makes you sad. 

There is so much discussion about “consent culture vs. rape culture” but you aren’t really clear about any of it.  You know that being a by-stander means you have a responsibility to keep others safe, but maybe you are still confused on when you should and how.  You are interested in dating but wonder how trust, respect, and consent play out in a relationship.

 It’s confusing and frustrating because you don’t think you are behaving badly. It seems like everything is shifting and you just want to understand how to fit into it all.

UPEI, White Ribbon Campaign and the RESPECT Project are teaming up to provide an opportunity for guys to explore their role in creating by-stander culture, consent and maintaining healthy relationships – and how they can contribute to safety and well-being for the campus community. 

This day long training will help you understand why this issue is important to guys, even when they have no intention of harming, harassing or assaulting anyone. The training breaks down the stereotypes of what “masculinity” means in our culture and how those stereotypes impact relationships.

You will receive a certificate for completing this leadership training.

The workshop will be co-facilitated by Scott Brown and Brad Deighan of the RESPECT Project and Kevin Vowles, Community Engagement Manager with White Ribbon Canada. White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity. RESPECT is a project that is managed by PEI Rape and Sexual Assualt Centre 

Workshop admission is free and includes snacks and lunch.

*IF YOU HAVE SPECIAL DIETARY RESTRICTIONS, PLEASE EMAIL and we will do our best to accomodate your needs.

The RESPECT Project – Responding to and Preventing Sexual Violence in PEI

The PEI Rape and Sexual Assault Centre and Women’s Network PEI received funding from Status of Women Canada for a two year project that aims to address sexual violence in our community. The first step is to conduct a needs assessment, which will look at the services available for victims of sexual assault in PEI, and any barriers and challenges that limit capacity to respond effectively. We also want to identify initiatives that will increase awareness and prevent sexual violence.
