The Graduate College does not tolerate any form of sexual harassment, retaliation or discrimination. These actions are not only erroneous, unethical, and completely against the mission of our institution-- they are serious violations that may create lifelong consequences for victims and abusers. Prevention goes hand in hand with creating awareness that these types of behaviors will never be tolerated on our campus. This workshop will discuss safe and positive options for bystander intervention to prevent harm, including how to intervene in risky situations; the recognition of abusive behavior; and how to avoid potential attacks.
By participating in this workshop you will:
- Define what constitutes as sexual harassment, retaliation, and discrimination.
- Discuss ways we can create awareness in our professional and academic spaces
- Learn about safe and positive intervention strategies
