Hello colleagues: July and August have been months of regrouping at AASECT. After June’s marathon Board meeting and mega-activity Conference, reflecting about where we are, who we are, and where we need to go as an organization has become the focus of board attention. Tasks put on hold to meet demands of governance and conference organizing in June now press for attention, and September annual planning is here. The themes that are preoccupying leadership this year are strategic planning and revision of governance documents and ways of doing things.
"How do we center creation and desire as integral to liberation? That is a question we’re going to have to keep asking ourselves . . . this world begs . . .[us to] move out of scarcity, move out of fear, move out of crisis, . . [that we be] powerful, fully living beings.” Adrienne Marée Brown. Pleasure Activism Dear colleagues,
Happy Holidays, Colleagues, I hope you will be with those you love during your holidays. Before we all get totally into the flow of holiday schedules, however, I want to take a moment to share some of what AASECT board members have been working on since July 1, when we assumed our new leadership roles. We had our first in-person board training and meeting November 2 and 3, and I want to share some of these highlights.
Sara Nasserzadeh, PhD DipPST, author of The Wheel of Context for Sexuality Education was created as a practical framework to ensure that educators, advocates, and researchers in the field of sexuality education maintain a holistic perspective on a selected number of key contextual factors that may influence, hinder or catalyze our work. The Wheel of Context may also help provide a greater appreciation for the communities we serve and ultimately lead to more desirable outcomes for our programs or projects.
