Sexual Violence Response, Support, and Education

The Interns Responsibilities and Guidelines workshop this year was held in partnership with OSVRSE, The Office for Sexual Violence Response, Support and Education. The OSVRSE provides support for all members of the McGill community who have been impacted by sexual violence and works to foster a culture of consent on campus and beyond. This session focuses on student interns' responsibilities and highlights the guidelines associated with the internship activity.

Leaving for an internship is an exciting time often filled with great anticipation for the unknown. To ensure that you have all the necessary resources and information available while away, we included a new two-hour special presentation hosted by Bianca Tétrault, McGill’s Sexual Violence Education Advisor and Shanice Yarde, McGill’s Equity Education Advisor (Anti-Oppression & Anti-Racism). Bianca and Shanice explored the important topics of sexual and gender-based violence and forms of discrimination. During this session, students became familiar with these topics in addition to developing strategies to respond to disclosures and supporting a fellow peer, gained a better understanding of cultural diversity, and learnt about the available resources at McGill and abroad to support people impacted.

This is a mandatory session for all students currently applying for a Faculty of Arts Internship Award or applying for academic credit.

Here is the presentation that was shared with the students in attendance. It contains useful resources that may be beneficial.
