Beyond Compliance: Ending Sexual Harassment Through Culture Change with Dr. Jackson Katz

Join us for two exciting upcoming programs in our region to build upon the national #MeToo conversation. Both sessions will be led by Dr. Jackson Katz, an internationally recognized educator, author, filmmaker and activist, and a founding architect of the bystander approach to prevention.

Confronting Sexual Harassment: A Workshop with Dr. Jackson Katz: Tuesday, March 6, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
#MeToo has exposed the pervasiveness of sexual harassment and abuse in the lives of women across all sectors. Traditional sexual harassment training is not sufficient to create a culture of respect for women and men. This workshop will explore the roots of sexual harassment and propose new ways for everyone to take action.

Program is open to the public and will take place at Rodef Shalom Congregation. Register here. The program will cost $25 if you RSVP by Feb 27; and $35 after. Student discount and scholarships available. 3.5 hours of CEU credit will be offered for this workshop. See details below.

Confronting Sexual Harassment: A Leadership Training for Decision-makers: Wednesday, March 7, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This in-depth training, led by Dr. Jackson Katz, is tailored for professionals in leadership positions in corporations, nonprofits, community organizations, schools, colleges and faith communities who want to learn a new approach, and leave with a plan. This program will be hosted in downtown Pittsburgh.

Those interested must apply here by February 27. If accepted, the program will cost $99 for corporate leaders and $65 for nonprofit, government and faith leaders. Scholarships are available. 6.5 hours of CEU credits will be offered for this training. See details below.
