DHI Induction - Race & Consent Session 

Consent Conversations will cover key topics on sexual consent, what the law says, some myths and facts about sexual consent and what an active bystander might look like. The session will consist of a 20-minute presentation on key concepts and a 40-minute interactive workshop. 

Race Conversations is aimed to explore race and racism, particularly racial inequality in the UK. The session will include examples of privilege, microaggressions as well as reflective and interactive questions on diversifying the curriculum and tackling difficult conversations. We will also discuss practical intervention tips, equipping our students with skills to safely intervene and protect themselves and or the victim(s). The session will consist of a 20-minute presentation on key concepts and a 40 minute interactive workshop. Prior to this session we highly encourage you to view the following video, as it will provide you with an initial understanding of race and racism in the UK. We will then explore the topics covered in the video further in our workshops. Racism - We need to think differently (5 minutes).
