You are cordially invited to a workshop “Moving the Needle”. Offered by Center for Research Learning and Teaching (CRLT) Players. Moving the Needle consists of three short monologues depicting members of academic communities disclosing their concerns about sexual harassment: a graduate student experiencing unwanted attention from her advisor, a staff member encountering explicit inappropriate comments around gender and sexual orientation from a co-worker, and a faculty member talking about his role in reporting on incidents of gender bias that have been shared with him. The facilitated dialogue paired with a presentation of research on the incidence and experience of sexual harassment invite participants to consider what is happening in their spaces and to reflect on what they can do to anticipate, respond to, and create cultures resistant to sexual harassment. This session is appropriate for faculty and graduate student instructors. In this session, participants will: - Consider various forms of sexual harassment and their impact on individuals and communities. - Learn strategies to anticipate and respond to incidents of sexual harassment. - Generate ideas to create cultures resistant to sexual harassment.
The workshop will count towards 2 Continuing Professional Education (CPEs) credits.
