The podcast where we piece together what makes a world without violence.
THE 13TH PIECE: SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE
This week, we are talking about sexual harassment in the workplace. Our guest is lawyer and staunch advocate for justice, Susan Toth. Susan is a partner at the law firm of Polishuk, Camman & Steele and teaches courses related to the law at Brescia University College and Western University. Her advocacy work continues outside of courtrooms and classrooms as a board member of the Urban League of London and the Chair of the London Police Services Board. We begin by defining what sexual harassment in the workplace is and dive into what the law can do, what are the challenges, and how it is a gender equity issue. Our conversation contains practical advice and tools for workplaces. A reminder that, this season of the podcast encompasses a workplace curriculum called The Community of Peace. This episode in particular would be a great place to start. We have discussion questions to help you navigate the content and create moments for reflection and conversation. You can sign up to receive discussion questions for every episode by visiting: https://www.anovafuture.org/community-of-peace.
What do you do when someone tells you that they’ve experienced sexual violence? Get ready to skill up! Anova’s Public Education Coordinator, Allison Preyde is back on the podcast with disclosure training. We are walking you through an effective three-step response to disclosures and answer your questions about what is helpful, what is harmful and why.
If you’re interested in learning more about disclosure training or would like to schedule a training, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE 11TH PIECE: SEXUAL ASSAULT AND THE JUSTICE SYSTEM
It’s our season two premiere! We talk about what survivors can expect when going through the justice system, practical knowledge for those who want system change and why less than 10% of survivors of sexual assault pursue legal action. Our guest is Karen Bellehumeur, a former Anova board member and experienced lawyer who represents survivors in criminal cases and in human rights claims for sexual assault and harassment. She is living proof that not all hero’s wear capes.
A note to our listeners that we do discuss sexual assault and harassment. Listener discretion is advised.
