The Consent Workshop consists of a large network of youths from all over the world. We have a strong network of school representatives, lawyers, liaisons and social media experts.
FOUNDER AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Uche Umolu founded the Consent Workshop in July 2018, after an online revolution asking survivors to message her, and speak their truth. The revolution inspired her to realize that for any change to occur in our communities, we must get everyone talking about rape culture- hence the birth of The Consent Workshop. With the help of a strong support team, Uche oversees and manages the overall operations of the movement from Toronto. Uche was named one of Canada’s 2019 Young Innovators selected by United Nations Canada & British Council. She was also recognized by CIBWE as one of 100 black women to watch in Toronto 2019
