Welcome back to the Driven Young podcast and I am going to cut the music for this intro.

Today we are covering a very serious and heavy topic. But I would argue this could be my most important episode yet.

Today I am joined by school Brent Sanders.

Brent Sanders is one of Australia’s most respected communicators in the field of workplace harassment, bullying and discrimination. He also presents lectures throughout Australia on sexual crime, criminal profiling and personal safety in senior secondary schools and universities.

Following a distinguished career in the Police Force, he started his own business presenting seminars and lectures on workplace harassment, conflict resolution and offender psychology.

So Brent came to my school years ago and did a presentation on sexual crime and assault, splitting up the boys and girls into separate groups. To date, my friends and I still talk about this presentation and it highlighted a massive issue I was so completely unaware of at the time. I talk a lot about what I think school should be teaching us and I am sure by the end of this episode you will be as shocked as me that school doesn't cover this.

Throughout the episode Brent highlights the importance of educating young people around this topic, what he has seen over 25 years of presenting this information at schools having been involved in a number of sexual crime cases, why stranger danger has conditioned us to believe if we stay away from strangers we are safe, what the law defines sexual assault as, the consequences of committing a crime like this and so much more.
