Training Tag(s): Movement Health & Operations

Ends: Thursday, Aug. 2 12:45 PM (Eastern)

Room: R07

None of us should ever have to say #MeToo about our experiences at work—especially if we work for progressive organizations—but too many of us have stories about sexual harassment, assault and other inappropriate behaviors from our time in progressive organizations, companies and campaigns. In this training, learn how to speak up in the moment if you experience harassment. We’ll also talk about bystander intervention techniques and how to get your workplace to take this issue seriously.
