Social Justice Policy Clinic : Gender-based Violence and Policy

October 3, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Thank you for your interest in this policy clinic, which will not only teach you about different kinds of policy analysis, but also create recommendations for SFU GP44: Sexual Violence and Misconduct, Prevention, Education, and Support which is being reviewed. If you are interested in this clinic, please register here.

This policy clinic is being facilitated by SFPIRG Director of Engagement, Chantelle Spicer, who has seven years of experience in sexualized violence policy in post-secondary institutions. She served as the Co-Chair of Students for Consent Culture Canada from 2019-2022 and has been involved in the organisation for 4 years. She also was a part of the committee that wrote the policy for Vancouver Island University and serves as an advisory council member on a number of provincial and federal government committees related to policy, legislation, and gender-based violence.
Unlike other SFPIRG opportunities, much of this clinic is specifically for SFU students and community members given that it is contributing directly to SFU policy, though all are welcome to join for session 1 where we will discuss gender-based policy analysis more broadly.
As a part of this clinic, you are expected to read the existing policy before our session on Tuesday September 26, which can be found here.
