This session will empower survivors to start dismantling the interlocking systems that continue to impede survivors’ ability to thrive at work (e.g., deeply embedded structural racism, sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, and other long-standing systems of oppression have been strengthened by the COVID-19 pandemic). This workshop will discuss what survivor-centered, trauma-informed systems look like and how to reach those who despite good works still cause harm.
