Expert chat: Enthusiastic Consent & Conditional Consent (Wed 21st February)

Hey everyone!

On Wednesday 21st Feb at 6.30pm, Sarah our expert, will be running an expert chat about Enthusiastic Consent and Conditional Consent.

Sarah is the co-founder of Scarlet Ladies, a community of women with the aim to destigmatise and normalise the conversation around female sexuality.

Suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after experiencing a number of traumas, including rape, Sarah is reclaiming her body by engaging in bodybuilding and powerlifting. Taking back control of her sexuality, she is currently remaining abstinent. Working and campaigning with other women for the sexual empowerment of women has been an integral part of her healing journey.

Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

    Hey Distraction!

    I've never had a job interview myself, so I can't really give any advice from my experience :\

    Maybe someone else more sociable than me can 😂

    Have you checked the page the mix has on this?
    http://www.themix.org.uk/work-and-st...tips-1218.html

    There'll be plenty of other online stuff too

    Good luck with the interview! Let us know how it goes
    Tough times never last, but tough people do

      Hey Distraction, congratulations on getting an interview. Wishing you the best of luck for it, let us know how it goes
      That article Aidan linked you to has some great advice and tips about job interviews that might be helpful to read through. This bit of advice is really good:

      Think of examples

      Saying, ‘I’m a really creative person’ doesn’t make it true. But saying, ‘I’m really creative. I have a photography blog I update three times a week’ will make an interviewer trust you. If you’re really a ‘team player’ you’ll need to demonstrate it. What kind of team? And what did you actually do that made you such a great teammate?
      Before the interview, make a list of the questions you might be asked and work out how you’d respond with examples.
      What helps for some people is to prepare some example questions and answers and practice reading through them. There's some great example questions on Prospects website here. It can also be good to think of a few questions to ask them at the end to show you're interested about the role

      Best of luck!
