Let’s Talk with BK Chan

Tuesday, September 7, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM 

In this 60-minute live talk, BK will explore how Consent Culture is a social way of being – it’s about how we relate to each other, not just sexual interactions, or intimate touch. What do you need to know and do? What kind of support can you get? This talk will show you -- openly, honestly, and with a sense of humour.

Coffee with Profs

Wednesday, September 8, 10:30 AM -12:30 PM

Don’t know what office hours are? Wondering what’s the best way to approach your profs?
