  • Career Centre
  • 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM Gendered and Sexual Violence Draft Policy - Consultations

    Gendered and Sexual Violence Draft Policy - Student Consultations 

    Students: Laurier needs your feedback on its sexual violence policy.

    Provincial legislation requires Ontario campuses to have standalone policy on sexual violence in place by January. Laurier is now in the final stages of drafting its policy and procedures. The policy working group of the Gendered Violence Task Force is now asking for feedback from students.

    Your voice is really important in this conversation. We would love you to be there to discuss the policy and procedure, and share ideas and thoughts for consideration. All consultation participants have the option of participating in a one-on-one in-person meeting, a town hall forum, and/or produce a written submission in response to reviewing the policy and procedure.

    The working group members involved in the town hall forum will be open to listening to all perspectives and stories and will do their best to ensure participants are heard. However, these forums are not the best time for working group members to receive and respond to reports of sexualized violence. If you require assistance navigating experiences of sexual violence, contact Sarah Scanlon, the Sexual Violence Support Advocate, atsscanlon@wlu.ca for support and advocacy support.

    The seminary presents its twice-yearly Abrahamic Faiths Forum exploring issues from three faith perspectives. This fall, panellists from the Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions will consider the question: What does it mean in your faith tradition to be peacemaking in this global context?

    The forum is preceded by an interfaith-themed Open Door service at 5 p.m. followed by the low-cost soup supper at 6 p.m. You are welcome to join us for any one, or all of the evening's events.
