WHAT IS GRAPHIC RECORDING?

Good question! Graphic recording is a powerful tool for synthesizing conversations, dialogues, meetings and events. The recorder creates large-format visuals in real time, tapping into the collective intelligence and wisdom of a group and bringing it to life with graphics.

These “murals” act as a public memory, and help participants in any meeting or conversation share complex ideas easily. Everyone feels acknowledged and recognizes that they are actively participating and being heard. Graphic recording increases understanding, productivity and creativity, and facilitates systems thinking. It also engages both the right and left sides of the brain.

Come hear Abby Davis and Laura Darcy speak on the most important part of a movement:
The 1st Follower at WMAM 2012: “

Abby and Laura’s campaign ‘Be The First’  is powered by their joint presentation that creates awareness of the importance of following a movement. Their interactive talk will be just before our morning keynote with the ultimate example of the power of the follower in spreading a message across the world: Slutwalk Toronto.

Abby Davis and Laura Darcy are both currently students at Ryerson University. Abby is in her 4th year of Social Work and Laura is currently in her 3rd year of Photography. Abby and Laura have worked together for the past 2 years as student leaders living in residence on campus. Through their experiences as student leaders they have begun to view leadership differently as they have noticed a greater need for more people to learn how to follow. They look to highlight the positive aspects of being a follower instead of focusing on the negative connotations. Abby and Laura want to bring awareness to the significance and impact the supporting role can play in a movement.

Good things DO grow in Ontario! Join us as we welcome Slutwalk Toronto to the 2nd annual discussion-focused White Ribbon Conference!

“What began as a reaction to one comment, a reaction that we had originally imagined only to include a handful of our closest friends, exploded into a kind of movement that we never could have expected.” Slutwalk was born and started with Slutwalk Toronto. A movement born in Ontario, that is inspiring change worldwide is one of the things the White Ribbon Campaign and Slutwalk Toronto have in common, Another thing in common is a goal to shift the conversation: Victim Blaming is not the answer to create a world with violence against women and girls.

We are excited to have the Slutwalk TO team join us at the What Makes a Man ‘Higher Unlearning’ the 2012 White Ribbon Conference!

Get to know the SlutWalk TO team at make plans to join them for their interactive discussion keynote at the 2nd annual White Ribbon Conference!

Heather Jarvis SlutWalk Co-Founder / Organizer

Heather Jarvis is a queer, sex- and body-positive feminist. With experience in women and gender studies, social work and community activism she was furious upon hearing a representative of the police slut-shame survivors and people at risk of sexual assault. Not entirely shocked by the incident, Jarvis believes we should be beyond the myths of people ‘asking’ or ‘deserving’ to be assaulted due to their behaviour or appearance. As a survivor and advocate for empowerment, Jarvis constantly aims to shed shame around sex and sexuality. She feels we deserve safe streets and a supportive justice system.  Described as an eternal optimist by some who know her, Heather Jarvis refuses to believe things cannot change. She is determined to continuously work on improving this world through increased respect, consent, understanding and acceptance.

 

Colleen Westendorf Communications Coordinator / Organizer

When Colleen Westendorf saw SlutWalk’s ‘Because We’ve Had Enough’ banner on their website- she was on board faster than you can say ‘Slut’. Colleen joined the SlutWalk Toronto team shortly after participating in the inaugural Toronto SlutWalk. Though she believes that he meant well, to her Michael Sanguinetti’s now-infamous comment was our rape-condoning culture in a single sound bite. Colleen is certain that so long as we live in a world where victims are exhaustively held to standard for their actions in relation to rape, an act that is by definition a complete override of their will and personal agency, she doesn’t live in a world where she or anyone else is safe from sexual violence.

Colleen works in Communications in the Not-for-Profit sector, and is by trade a writer. She also volunteers for a pro-choice, LGBTQ-positive sexual health clinic as a sex educator and is committed to sex-positivity and sexual and reproductive health rights as fundamental human rights. As a newcomer to activism and community organizing, she’s learning as she goes – and so grateful for everything she’s getting out of the process.

To borrow a phrase from Eve Ensler, a personal hero of hers, Colleen believes the mission of SlutWalk and anti-violence movements everywhere will continue to have relevance ‘Until the Violence Stops’- and until we truly reach a point of zero tolerance for sexual violence. She’s in a mad rush for us to get there.

You can follow her on twitter here.

Raisa Bhuiyan Outreach Coordinator

Raisa Bhuiyan is an enthusiast, particularly of gritty grassroots activism and events that bring people together to mobilize against painstakingly dangerous social norms. She’s also harbouring a pathological fear of biographies, especially the type that has to be typed out in a box.

But if you really wanna know, do know that she squirted out the 2% milk she was drinking right through her nose when she heard about the don’t-dress-like-a-slut-suggestion that a Toronto Police officer made on her campus.

At the moment, Raisa is ridiculously excited about how communities of people have become energized enough to open up a space for a much needed conversation on how the integration of different strategies and different hystories can help SlutWalk better engage with the new paradigms of feminist organizing.


Slutwalk Toronto asks you to join them in their mission to spread the word that those those who experience sexual assault are not the ones at fault, without exception.

RYERSON ENGINEERS! Show your pride and join us as we say thank you to the RESS execs for being role models at the 2nd annual What Makes A Man conference!

The Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign wishes to acknowledge the Ryerson Engineering Student Society for their leadership and role modelling during the course of the 2011-2012 academic year at Ryerson U with a ‘White Ribbon Champion’ award.

The ‘White Ribbon Champion’ award is presented to a group that works to create and nurture a gender-equitable campus for the Ryerson community to work, live and study.  When someone vandalized a Women in Engineering poster in the George Vari building, RESS was quick to speak out via social media and condemn the act. RESS VP Communications Natasha Niznik said “Engineers are supposed to hold certain morals and a thirst for justice. It goes hand in hand with the responsibility we are given by society.”

Ryerson male engineering students rallied to show support of RESS VP External Jolene Funk, who spoke at the annual December 6th Memorial, with a surprise gift of flowers and a note.

The note reads: On this day in 1989, a terrible act took place  because of ignorance and intolerance. We can never understand the way you feel, but we can instead try to educate those around us and create tolerance, acceptance, and understanding within the engineering community. We can put a stop to negative attitudes and discrimination to ensure that nothing this horrible ever happens again. We will continue to promote the best our community can be through action, attitude and example so that everyone feels comfortable and welcome in engineering at Ryerson.

Sincerely,  The M.I.E. (Men in Engineering)”

Jolene Funk will be on hand to accept the award and deliver a short talk on what makes for a good engineer at our discussion-focused event. Check out the program for the conference for details and to see the other amazing speakers joining us! We look forward to seeing proud Ryerson Engineering students out to join us!

Join us as we award RESS and RESS VP Jolene Funk delivers a talk at the 2nd annual What Makes A Man White Ribbon Conference on Saturday February 11th

In October 2011, Canadian Muslim Imams, groups and leaders took steps with a statement called the  “Call to Action to Eradicate Domestic Violence”. It ends by stating “As Muslims and as Canadians, we stand with all Canadians and pledge to combat domestic violence in all its manifestations, wherever and whenever they arise.”

Afaun Mandol, a spokesperson for Muslim Presence Toronto has been working to spread the conversation. In an article in Iqra.ca Mandol says “We are hoping to raise awareness about domestic violence in Canada with the White Ribbon Days…the White Ribbon Campaign is a means to start the conversation in our community to challenge everyone to speak out, and think about their own personal beliefs, language and actions”.

Join us to hear Afaun at the 2nd annual ‘What Makes A Man’ White Ribbon Conference.

Join Jared Walker for his talk entitled “What Makes a Black Man President?” at
What Makes A Man. Higher Unlearning: The 2012 White Ribbon Conference

Jared A. Walker is an unrepentant political junkie. He is a fierce believer that democratic government mirrors a community’s values, priorities and togetherness, and is at turns fearful and hopeful about what our politics says about us as a people.

For the duration of the 2008 presidential elections in the US, Jared served as the New York State Coordinator of ‘Students for Barack Obama‘ – the official student arm of the ‘Obama for America’ campaign. In 2009, he completed his BA in Political Science at Columbia University.

Shortly thereafter, Jared worked as a Program Coordinator at iMapAmerica , a national youth advocacy non-profit based in New York. There he drafted and spearheaded the OneVote program which promoted civic education and involvement in the large percentage of American high schools where it is not part of the curriculum. He also worked on iMapAmerica’s community mapping pilot project in New Orleans, which empowered local youth to be a part of the revitalization of their communities after Hurricane Katrina by creating an interactive online resource guide.

Partnering with members of NYRA (the National Youth Rights Association), Jared co-founded ‘ycivics’, a social-media based program designed to maintain youth political involvement in the wake of the 2008 election euphoria. Before returning from the other side of the 45th parallel he travelled to Stockholm in order to be the Keynote Speaker for the ‘Engagemang 2010’ Conference on Social Media, Youth & Political Engagement.

Since moving home to Toronto in 2010, Jared has worked as a consultant with a diverse group of non-profits ranging from small community theatres & arts collectives to national health foundations, pharmaceutical firms & small international development charities. In December, he traveled to Arusha, Tanzania along with Strategies for Life – an international aid charity.
