Ending sexual harassment in academic medicine

Training is now underway! All DoM faculty are required to undergo training in sexual harassment awareness. The training is 60 minutes in length and will be interactive. The tools that will be used in this workshop will empower all of us to create a culture of awareness and respect, that will help all faculty thrive in our workplace. 

What faculty who have completed the training are saying:

"I thought it was excellent...a helpful session and well organized." 
"The session was well received...I heard only positive feedback. I think this is the start of the conversation and hope we have some follow up."
