ABOUT THE SUMMIT
ABOUT THE SUMMIT

The 7th Annual Summit on Sexual Assault and Consent will bring together students, faculty, administrators, and parents from high schools across the country to discuss the epidemic of sexual violence facing people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, and identities. For the first time since 2019, the 2022 Summit will be held in-person at Georgetown Day School in Washington, DC! 

 

We are excited to bring together students, teachers, and parents from across the world for this year's Summit!

This year's Summit will revolve around the theme
"Creating Community through Connection." As we come back together in person, our hope is that we can engage in community-building work that will continue long after the Summit.

Registration Details

Schools can register to attend via school teams of up to 6 participants (typically four students and two faculty/staff members). If a school has more than six people interested in attending, schools can register multiple teams. The cost per team of 6 is $600 which includes food, access to all workshops, and Summit swag!

Individual students and school employees can register as well. All individual participants can register for $125/person. 

We also provide a track specifically designed for parents! As noted above, the standard cost of individual registration is $125. But since we know that this is an urgent conversation for parents and guardians, we are happy to waive the registration fee so that all who are interested can attend. However, we welcome financial contributions to the GDS Consent Summit, which can be submitted at the end of the online registration process.

 

If the cost of the Summit is restrictive for you or for your school, please email us at consentsummit@gds.org  before filling out the registration form.

Participants have the opportunity to attend workshops that address the many issues related to sexual violence including messaging in the media, cultural and social norms, laws and policies at federal, state, and local levels, and sexual education in schools.  You will also hear about the various projects and initiatives of individuals making a tremendous difference in the fight against sexual violence, locally and nationally.

TO ACTION

FROM AWARENESS

We partner with experts in the field​authors, activists, advocates. students, educators, and those who dedicate their lives to addressing this issue.  These experts run workshops geared specifically towards students, educators, and parents.

We provide space for school teams to come together to brainstorm and strategize ways to bring back what they have learned to their communities.

Even in a virtual setting, we will have counselors available at all times from the DC Rape Crisis Center (DRCC) for those who may encounter some difficulties throughout the day and need a little extra support.
