GENDER-BASED MISCONDUCT FROM POLICIES TO RESOLUTION: PRACTICAL STEPS TO SOLIDIFYING EFFECTIVE SYSTEMS


Media scrutiny surrounding campus sexual assault and the staggering statistics about sexual violence have captured the nation’s attention. While campuses have begun the process of creating or revising their gender-based misconduct policies, resolution structures, and training individuals to work within the systems, many continue to struggle with how to consistently implement their protocols and procedures. Lindy Aldrich, attorney, national Title IX trainer and Deputy Director of the Victim Rights Law Center and Jeremy W. Inabinet, University of Chicago Associate Dean of Students, national resolution process trainer and consultant, have joined together to share their expertise on what campuses need to know beyond their policies in order to effectively respond to gender-based violence. Together, they have worked with thousands of campus professionals to address underlying concerns associated with resolving cases of gender-based misconduct, and the combination of their broad experiences allows them to draw from campus-specific examples to create sound, practical advice. This two-day training starts with the fundamentals of creating integrated, trauma-informed policies, confidential response protocols, and investigation/resolution processes, and continues with insightful workshops on how to practically implement each system with a community-centered, multi-disciplinary team approach. This training is open to all, but will most benefit Title IX coordinators, campus administrators, investigators, conduct board members, faculty, first responders, and general counsel. Registration fees are $495 per person. A $50 per person discount will be applied when registering 3 or more people.
