#MeToo's Lessons for Higher Ed

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Kaleidoscope Room, Newcomb Hall

Since the #MeToo movement gained traction in October, waves of allegations of sexual harassment have rocked workplaces across an array of industries. As one professional community after another has been called to account, we need to take the time for a careful look at how college campuses are affected by the issues this movement raises.  

Our panelists include: 

  • Meredith Clark, Assistant Professor, Department of Media Studies
  • Anne Coughlin, Lewis F. Powell, Jr., Professor of Law at the University of Virginia
  • Catherine Spear, Associate Vice President, Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights
  • Lisa Speidel, Assistant Professor, General Faculty, of Women, Gender & Sexuality

Please join us for a conversation about ways that we can ensure a respectful climate, support those who have experienced sexual harassment, and encourage allies to play an active role.
