Synchronous/In-Person Workshops and Webinars
The Human Rights and Equity Office provides education in the areas of human rights, equity, accessibility and sexual violence prevention and response. Our educational programs build community awareness, increase knowledge and address systemic barriers to inclusion.
We offer a wide diversity of educational sessions. Learners can explore content both asynchronously and synchronously. Education provided by the Human Rights and Equity Office, aims to empower learners to develop strategies and skills to assist in the creation of inclusive spaces and places for all members of our community. Sessions have been designed with all learners in mind, regardless of role or knowledge level. Examples of synchronous events include:
- Accessible Event Plans
- Creating Accessible Documents
- This is Canada: Living Anti-Racism
- Showing Up for Anti-Racism and Inclusion (Mandatory Training for Grades 10-14, Department Heads and Administrators)
- Introduction to Anti-Oppression (virtual/in-person)
- Positive Space training on sexual and gender diversity
- Sexual Violence Policy Updates specific to Queen’s University.
A reminder that Section 10 of the sexual violence policy requires that all employees who receive a disclosure of sexual violence from a student provide the student with information about the policy and supports available. Additionally, the employee must notify the SVPRC. Information which identifies the student should only be shared with the student’s consent.
