Spring Workshop Series!
Join the Center for Women & Community for our 2014 Spring Workshop Series. Our Community Education Services and Women of Color Leadership Network have come together to provide opportunities to discuss and build skills around topics such as sexual violence, body image, privilege, and consent. This series is focused around the concept of Bystander Intervention, which provides concrete skills and tools for responding to a wide range of inequalities and harmful behaviors. Participants who attend a workshop will receive fun giveaways; additional recognition will be given to individuals who attend multiple workshops.
