As members of the Women in Arts and Media Coalition we have been invited to participate in the conversation around sexual harassment. Please see details below and make sure you RSVP.
The SAG-AFTRA FOUNDATION Invites you to:
Addressing Sexual Harassment:
Protection, Recourse, Recovery & Culture Change
Friday, November 17
Robin Williams Center | 247 West 54th Street
Fear of addressing harassment is all too common among people working, or pursuing work, in the entertainment industry. Many worry about retaliation, ruptured relationships, and a tarnished reputation within a close-knit community. Such fears lead to second-guessing or excusing unacceptable behavior, and most often, silenced voices. The consequence of this silence can be severe and lasting.
Join us in a safe space for an informational discussion with institutions and individuals to share information about your rights, protections, and available resources. We will also discuss strategies we can pursue to positively shift the culture of our industry, to support and uphold our fundamental right to be safe in our person and to be treated with dignity and respect.
