Engendering Respectful Communities: Preventing Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment
March 10, 2023, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm EST
Engendering Respectful Communities (ERC) is a one-session workshop combining multiple instructional tools to engage graduate students in meaningful dialogue about the various forms of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, assault, and discrimination, that they may encounter. Participants are then able to build skills to intervene safely in potentially harmful situations. ERC workshops make use of the circle process, which focuses on building meaningful connections between participants and ensuring all participants can engage in respectful dialogue. ERC sessions are facilitated by the Sexual Assault and Prevention Center’s Graduate Research, Outreach, Workshops, and Evaluation volunteers, who are all current graduate students.
By the conclusion of the workshop participants will have:
- an understanding of the various forms of sexual misconduct and discrimination that graduate students may encounter.
- been introduced to foundational tools for intervening safely in potentially harmful situations.
- knowledge of the resources available to them on campus for preventing and responding to sexual misconduct and discrimination.
This workshop is designed for University of Michigan master’s students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact [email protected] to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
