"Sexual Harassment and Gender Violence Prevention: Personal and Institutional Strategies" with Jackson Katz
Online registration is now closed. There will be a limited number of seats available at the door.
#MeToo has exposed the pervasiveness of sexual harassment and all forms of gender violence across all sectors. Many people are appalled to learn how frequently family members, friends and colleagues have experienced this abuse. This workshop will explore the roots of gender violence and propose new ways for everyone to take action.

Participants will:
- Be introduced to the idea that gender violence is deeply rooted in cultural ideologies of gender, especially dominant ideas about "manhood." 
- Through a series of exercises, learn new ways to think, talk, and write about sexual harassment and gender violence.
- Be introduced to racially and ethnically sensitive, and culturally competent, ways to approach gender violence prevention, rather than through a one-size-fits-all approach.
- Learn new strategies to take action to prevent sexual harassment and gender violence.

There is no fee to attend, but you must register in advance.
