Saturday, January 19
9:00-10:15 AM
Palace Room, 9th Floor

Speaker:
Akia Squitieri

This past year brought a sweeping response to harassment and improper conduct allegations by those in powerful positions in the performing arts and entertainment fields. We know what’s wrong, but what can we do about it? This session will discuss how to respond to incidents and allegations; how to navigate academic, artistic, and professional environments; the different responsibilities of venue staff, renters, and artists; and the tools and resources available to foster a culture of prevention. Men, women, artists, presenters, students, and others are invited to learn in this judgment-free zone.
