Moving the Needle: Shifting the Conversation around Sexual Harassment

Ann Arbor MI 11-15-2019 11-15-2019

This workshop is centered around the presentation of three short monologues that depict 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. 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, and create cultures resistant to sexual harassment
