Sexual Harassment: When Professional Development is Compromised

Many students work, intern or are assigned to a work environment where they strive to meet professional goals and demands daily.  Sexual harassment should never be condoned and impairs professional growth. Learn to identify sexual harassment and the possible ways you can react and respond to sexual harassment.  Led by Sexual Violence Response staff and volunteers. Related: Columbia’s policy on sexual harassment here.

This session will connect intersectionality to the experience of survivors and examine potential barriers to services. Led by Sexual Violence Response staff and volunteers.

In this session, participants will learn concrete first-response skills, how to assess if a client/patient is being abused, and effective strategies for individuals working in the medical field to intervene. Led by Sexual Violence Response staff and volunteers.
