Sexual Assault Awareness Month
What You Do Today Might Change Someone's Tomorrow
Even with the best prevention efforts in place, sadly, students, faculty, and staff throughout the world will become victims of sexual assault and violence. At Vector Solutions, we know that each of us plays a vital role in preventing and reducing sexual assault and violence on campus. A role so important that our actions today can very well change the outcomes for tomorrow.
That’s why in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Vector Solutions is providing a variety of free valuable resources to educators and administrators to use on their campus and in their classrooms to change student and employee behaviors regarding sexual assault and violence.
Free Webinar: Decoding Digital Abuse: Prevention Strategies for 2020 and Beyond + Insights on Pending Title IX Regulations
Sexual exploitation was not included in most campus sexual misconduct policies until recently, if at all. Much of the commentary on the topic is based in victim-blaming for the new age: “why did you put yourself in that position?” is the updated “what were you wearing?” In a continually evolving landscape of social media platforms, apps, video and photo sharing services, surveillance technology, and more, how can outreach efforts best target effective risk reduction, primary prevention, and changing social norms? How will pending Title IX regulations impact on technology-facilitated sexual violence?
This webinar will:
- Provide an explanation of what constitutes digital abuse.
- Identify the similarities and differences between digital abuse and other forms of sexual violence.
- Inform on how to stay current on technologies related to digital abuse.
- Advise on how prevention education can encompass digital abuse.
- Discuss the pending Title IX regulations and their impact on digital abuse.
