Sexual Assault Survivor to Speak About Perseverance, Violence Prevention, Masculinity Perceptions
Tim Mousseau, an unforgettable speaker who uses powerful personal stories to combat sexual violence, redefine masculinity, and provoke change, will be giving a free public talk at University of Findlay Winebrenner Building’s TLB Auditorium on Wednesday, April 17 at 6 p.m.
Registration is required by clicking here. Also included with the presentation will be refreshments, a raffle, and great community conversation.
The event is being held in recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Mousseau’s own experience with being sexually assaulted, and the stalking and blackmailing that followed, leads to empowerment and education. By owning his story and redefining his outlook, Mousseau found that he could not only survive the ordeal, but thrive as well by educating others about campus sexual assault, particularly the positive ways to prevent it and respond when it does occur.
Mousseau, a SpokesMo for the Movember Foundation and past board member of the nonprofit 1 in 6, is also a widely-published author on masculinity topics. His focus is on how traditional values and tropes concerning masculinity provoke meaningful conversations that help people of all genders see the differences between healthy versus toxic behaviors and views.
He received a master’s degree in organizational leadership from Gonzaga University, and a bachelor’s degree in communication from the University of New Mexico.
The presentation is sponsored by UF’s Social Work Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Oilers Changing Campus Culture (OC3). OC3 is a UF student, faculty, and staff organization that is committed to eliminating, preventing, and addressing instances of prohibited conduct under the federal Title IX law.
