Event Details

Summary of this session:

Does sexual consent really ruin the mood? Is it still consented if there was alcohol involved? What can be done to protect ourselves and our loved ones?

In this workshop, we will go over what sexual consent is, how to obtain it, and how to intervene into dangerous situations as an active bystander.

Are you interested in raising your awareness about diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) issues in Japanese society? Would you like to talk about these issues with other students and faculty in a safe environment and actively work towards improving inclusivity on and off campus?


Aims to increase dialogue and awareness about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) through mini-lectures, workshops, casual conversation, and other events.
Promote a safe environment for both students and faculty to talk about DEI issues, where all experiences and perspectives are valued.
Provide opportunities to actively improve DEI within and outside campus for students and faculty by promoting collaboration on various projects.

Target Audience:

All University of Tokyo students and faculty who would like to learn more about the experiences of diverse individuals and be involved in the research, planning, and implementation of inclusion projects
