Welcome to Consent

Thu 9 Sep, 1.15pm
Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Goldfields Theatre

Consent underpins all types of relationships, from friendship to collegial, platonic to romantic. It is an important topic for everyone to consider, raising questions like: when can I say no? How do I know when to say yes? How do I talk about consent?

Luckily, you’re not alone in figuring out the answers. Consent experts Dr Melissa Kang and Yumi Stynes will guide you through the issues so that when the time comes, you’ll know what to say and how to say it.
