Gender Equality in the #Metoo Era

Event Description

Deadline to Register: May 15, 2019

In the #MeToo era, one of the lessons we are learning is that making people feel welcome is key to preventing sexual harassment. Today, making all people feel welcome requires a much broader understanding of gender diversity, including transgender and nonbinary gender identities. Christy Hall, Senior Staff Attorney at Gender Justice, will seek to provide a greater understanding of gender diversity while addressing underlying gender bias that may play out in the provision of public services and administration of justice. She will provide strategies for using this new knowledge to overcome biases and thereby create a welcoming environment that prevents sexual harassment. The presentation will also focus on effective sexual harassment prevention in public employment, schools, and accommodations.

A percentage of proceeds from this event will be donated to the Gender Justice of MN organization .
