Higher Ed in the Era of #MeToo
April 20, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Building 3, Room 270
Join us for a free half day conference at MIT on how the recent #MeToo movement has impacted higher education. There will be a mix of panels and workshops to encourage dialogue and learning between students, faculty, activists, and other experts.
The #MeToo movement, started by Tarana Burke in 2006, has highlighted the prevalence of sexual violence within all aspects of our society – from Hollywood to college campuses. As more survivors share their experiences, we need more creative ways to support, prevent, innovate, and collaborate on this issue. Many marginalized communities have led the fight to end sexual violence, yet history has put their work and experiences on the margins. In order to truly focus on prevention and support, we must elevate these communities and their leaders.
The conference will be followed by a cocktail reception to share what was learned and build upon the discussion!
