Live video-conference sessions on June 8 & 9, 2020
This conference is organized by the Sexual Harassment/Violence Working Group of the Berkeley Center on Comparative Equality and Anti-Discrimination Law. Conference participants will be examining resistance to sexual harassment as a global issue. Simultaneous with the conference, the Center will be issuing our new book, The Global #MeToo Movement.
The conference will proceed in four stages. In the first stage, we ask each participant who registers to share an insight about sexual harassment/violence. In the second stage, we will distribute to each registered participant links to seven pre-recorded panels, giving them an opportunity to consider the observations of approximately 40 speakers and to comment on them prior to the live sessions. In the third stage, we will hold two days of five-hour sessions on June 8th and 9th with a combination of plenary sessions, workshops, small group discussions, and a keynote address by Professor Jamillah Bowman Williams. The fourth stage will be determined by the participants, addressing where we go and what we do next.
