Prevalence of Workplace-Related Sexual Violence: Moving from Context to Creating Protective Environments for Prevention

Wednesday, 29 January 2020

With the momentum of #MeToo and #TimesUp comes an increased focus on workplace sexual harassment and assault, and preventing these forms of violence across all industries. From the service industry to corporate jobs to farmworkers and janitorial workers to those working 9 to 5’s to make a living and every workplace in between, the tide is turning to prioritize sexual violence prevention in all workplaces. New research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, National Prevalence of Sexual Violence by a Workplace-Related Perpetrator, quantifies the magnitude of workplace-related sexual violence and examines both authority and non-authority figure perpetrators. Join PreventConnect, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, and CDC on this web conference to discuss the key findings from National Prevalence of Sexual Violence by a Workplace-Related Perpetrator and its implications for preventing workplace sexual harassment and assault.
