Part research presentation, part embodied case study, and part community conversation, Moving the Needle: Shifting the Conversation around Sexual Harassment challenges participants to expand their understanding of what sexual harassment is, how it impacts individuals and communities, and what makes an environment ripe for its presence. Using the NASEM consensus study report as both grounding and springboard, this session eschews a "tips and tricks" workshop model, instead pointing attendees toward the ongoing reflective practices that individuals and communities will need to commit to in order to address the culturally embedded problem of sexual harassment.
**The embodied case studies in this session contain strong language and detailed descriptions of sexual harassment.
In this session, participants will:
- Identify behaviors that constitute sexual harassment.
- Reflect on the ways sexually harassing behaviors differentially impact individuals and communities.
- Examine common points of failure and systemic inequities that maintain a status quo permissive of sexual harassment.
- Brainstorm ideas for how an organization might develop a climate that is more resistant to sexual harassment.
- Learn concrete steps to signal support for individuals who disclose a concern about sexual harassment.
