Event description

Description

To celebrate White Ribbon Day The Social Justice Hub is hosting the Elm Project on Thursday 23rd November 2017 at 12 pm at One Friar Gate Square to run and interactive workshop on ‘Understanding Sexual Respect’



The Elm Foundation is a specialist and experienced provider of Domestic Abuse services. They were established in 1985 when they opened their first refuge in Chesterfield.


They are a local charity, which offers a range of services appropriate to individual need to help and support women, men and children who are affected by Domestic Abuse.


Their Mission Statement:

‘We will create lasting change by developing responses to domestic abuse that increase safety for victims.’


The ABC Project was launched on November 25, 2016, White Ribbon Day. They chose the White Ribbon Campaign UK because it is part of a global movement to end violence against women and girls. White Ribbon Day is held every year. The White Ribbon Campaign addresses men directly - so they understand the scale of the problem, and become part of the solution, alongside women.

Interactive Workshop - Understanding Sexual Respect

This is an opportunity for you to experience how we work with men in a group setting and how we challenge their behaviour and belief system in order for them to change their abusive behaviour. It will demonstrate how we work as co-gendered facilitators to show healthy and respectful relationships between male and female colleagues.


Workshop overview:

1) Brief Introduction to the ABC Project and today’s session – Understanding Sexual Respect

2) Sexual Respect Quiz

3) Sexual Harassment explained

4) The Story Leo and Angela– Entitlement to sex? Belief, intent and behaviour


Staff from the project will also have a stall with literature and will be happy to chat individually and in small groups to people who are interested in finding out more and/or want to get involved.
