Talking taboos

Facilitation + Workshop Design

About | In my previous role as a sex educator, I visited schools and community centres across Melbourne to deliver educational programs to students aged 5-18 years old, and facilitated conversational workshops with kids and their caregivers after school hours. By supporting anxiety-free dialogue with peers and parents, I was able to provide a ‘safe container’ to talk openly about traditionally taboo topics with the goal of encouraging continued conversations once session(s) were over. I also facilitated healthy relationships programs for young women for the Centre Against Sexual Assault, conducted one-on-one sessions to help women navigate and select birth control options at a Planned Parenthood Toronto clinic, spoke on a panel at the People for Education conference at the Rotman School of Management, and was interviewed by the Toronto Star about the controversial sex education curriculum in Ontario.
