We often think about consent in the context of personal and intimate relationships; however, consent is a key facet of communication in everyday life. It is important that we create workplaces, groups, offices, programs, and cultures that center a culture of consent. When we center consent in the workplace and on college campuses, we can build mutual respect, room for boundaries, productivity, and safer communities for all members of our community. A foundation of consent allows our students, staff, and faculty to be more attentive to the needs of our community while balancing our own needs too. This workshop will explore and define consent in the workplace and on our campuses. This workshop will help participants explore how to interact with coworkers, colleagues, our students, and the greater community in a more consensual way. Not only does this pave the way to safer communities for all, but it assists in cultivating better communication and connection to the outcomes of our work. This workshop will also address the barriers to consent practices in higher education do to hierarchical and historical structure and expectations.
