Calling #TimesUp for Everyone: Sexual Harassment and Abuse Across Industries
The #MeToo movement has revolutionized the way we talk about and deal with sexual harassment and assault in the workplace. Since last fall, certain industries have faced sweeping changes, with powerful abusers losing jobs, money, stature, and more. But what will it take for this reckoning to happen in *every* workplace? These panelists are working to ensure #MeToo is a movement beyond what you might see in the headlines. They’ll tell us what it will take to demand “time’s up” for everyone and how each of us can help.

Violence Against Women: Supporting the Needs of Survivors
Limited Capacity seats available

The United Nations describes violence against women as “the most pervasive yet least recognized human rights abuse in the world,” and it takes many forms: from domestic and intimate partner violence, to trafficking, to sexual assault, and more. Add in the fact that how women experience violence is impacted by our layered identities, and it’s clear there’s no one size fits all solution to providing support to survivors. These panelists are leading efforts to support survivors in ways that meet their unique needs, as whole individuals. Join us for a conversation about what informs their approach and inspires their work.
