This session focused on ending sexual harassment and promoting respect in the workplace and community.

March 7: Dr. Jackson Katz led an exclusive session for 40 executives, HR professionals, government officials and other individuals in decision-making positions. This in-depth training session taught professionals to think beyond compliance and focus on creating healthy and productive work environments with expectations of equitable treatment.

March 8: More than 60 corporate leaders gathered at the Duquesne Club on International Women’s Day for the Fourth Annual Corporate Leadership Breakfast to End Violence Against Girls and Women.
