language of the event

Follow-up workshop Respect at Universities II is a hands-on, interactive workshop designed to provide university employees with information and tools that form the prevention component of addressing sexual harassment, bullying, and violence on campus. The workshop is designed for individuals who attended the initial Respect at Universities I workshop. We will put the topic of gender-based violence and sexual harassment in a broader context and connect it to the related issues of intersectionality, physical and psychological violence, economic and financial violence, and sexual and cyber violence. We will deepen our knowledge of the bystander or bystander effect and practice how to talk to a victim of harassment in a practical exercise. Real-life stories from a university setting will allow us to recognize less apparent forms of gender-based harassment, and we will also talk about the most common myths about victim blaming and secondary victimization. We'll share our attitudes and opinions and walk away a little better prepared not to be part of the problem.
