Out in UL held its first ever consent workshop as part of the Not Just SomeBody campaign.
The workshop was led by Co-President Ciara Ciara Mag Mhuirneacháin and First Year Rep Orla McDermott. It focused on putting scenarios involving consent forward to those taking part. Everyone who took part came away with a better understanding of issues around consent and better equipped to speak to others about it.
The consent workshop was one of three held in one day as part of Out in UL’s Not Just SomeBody campaign, which also included workshops on Domestic Abuse (with the Feminist Society) and on Gender Identity. Highway to Heels Catwalk that took place in the Courtyard as part of the campaign.
