Lunch & Learn: Gender and Politics 3/8; Consent 4/5

ll_smallThe UT Libraries Diversity Committee hosts a series of lunchtime discussions to facilitate comfortable dialog about diversity and inclusion. Lunch and Learn invites students and other members of the campus community to talk openly but respectfully about complex issues that impact their lives and their campus experience.

Join us for two workshops this spring:

Gender and Politics
Noon – 1:30 p.m., Thursday, March 8 (International Women’s Day)
Mary Greer Room (258 Hodges Library)

A facilitated panel discussion co-hosted by the Women’s Coordinating Council and the UT Libraries Diversity Committee. Our panel will feature political scientists, politicians, and activists discussing the interactions between identity and politics.

Having Difficult Conversations on Consent
Noon – 1:30 p.m., Thursday, April 5
Mary Greer Room (258 Hodges Library)

Consent means an active agreement to participate in sexual contact or sexual penetration. Fletcher Haverkamp and Bilqis Amatus-Salaam will facilitate a conversation on the words or conduct that communicate a person’s willingness to participate in sexual contact.

Fletcher Haverkamp serves as the Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator for the Center for Health Education and Wellness. Fletcher was a co-author of the OVW Campus Grant and serves as the Project Coordinator for the grant. Prior to his current role, Fletcher worked at Catholic Charities Columbus Home Group Home for boys and as Graduate Assistant for the Center for Health Education and Wellness where he facilitated alcohol and other drug programs, sexual violence prevention programs, and conducted data assessment.

Bilqis Amatus-Salaam is the Wellness Coordinator for General Wellness Promotion at the Center for Health Education and Wellness. She completed her Master’s in Public Health in 2015 with a focus on sexual health and college student health. In her role at UT she focuses on cold and flu prevention, stress reduction, sleep promotion, nutrition, and sexual health.
