The USSU Women’s Centre is hosting Sexual Violence Awareness Week. Our week will focus on awareness, steps that can be taken toward prevention, community, and healing.
Monday, September 20
Join us at 2:30 as Morgan Price (Education & Outreach Coordinator at Saskatoon Sexual Assault and Information Centre) kicks off our Sexual Violence Awareness Week with a presentation about understanding sexualized violence. Sexualized Violence 101: all the things we think you should know about this systemic issue and what we can do to begin eradicating sexualized violence from our community. Topics covered will include definitions of terminology, an overview of consent and the law, impacts on survivors, and ways to be a strong support person. All are welcome!
Tuesday, September 21
In the era of the Me Too movement, conversations about sexualized violence have entered the mainstream media. As we learn to understand its harmful impacts, we also strive to eliminate this harm from our communities. In this session we will discuss power & privilege, consent, and the ways in which we can take action for individual and systemic change. Join us Tuesday at 2pm.

Studentpreneur is a platform for students to take an idea and make it a reality. We are creating a space for students to get the opportunities to build, grow and share their ideas. This initiative will encourage students to identify their careers and prepare them for a career they define for themselves, and these learning opportunities will help students to develop the needed skills.
Throughout this learning and experimental journey, students will be guided through a series of workshops led by experts, and student market space to promote themselves and their brands, a ‘pitch night’ to present their ideas to get financial support to make their idea a reality. Please take our survey and let us know what areas interest you most.
If you have any questions you can email Abhineet Goswami, USSU Vice-President Operations and Finance at email@example.com
