Sexual Consent Education Program

Researchers to look beyond consent to gender and sexuality norms
Professor Lee Wallace and Dr Victoria Rawlings to support Consent Labs with school programs that seek to prevent sexual and gendered violence.

Researchers in SSSHARC have won a $1.1 million grant to support Consent Labs, a national female-founded social enterprise and a leading provider of youth-facilitated, evidence-based consent and respectful relationship workshops in over 150 NSW schools. The two-year research grant has been awarded by the Department of Communities and Justice to prevent gendered violence in schools through innovative educational programs and resources, including workshops and games, that can be implemented at scale.

Consent Labs’ existing programs span modules on what consent looks like, how consent is influenced by factors such as technology, or alcohol and other drugs, and sexual violence. The programs developed with the University of Sydney will look at the wider landscape of consent, including gender and sexuality norms.
