Participant expectations on workshop safety

The Centre for Career Development is committed to creating safe workshop and event spaces where participants are free to explore their own career development in an environment free of judgement, discrimination, harassment, disrespect and violence. Harmful behaviour in workshops and event s will not be tolerated. Harmful behaviours may result in immediate removal from the event or workshop; up to and including removal of access to all future Centre for Career Development and Co-operative and Experiential Education events and services.
