MVP is a widely acclaimed leadership program that motivates both men and women to play a central role in solving problems that historically have been considered “women’s issues:” rape, relationship abuse, sexual assault and harassment. The MVP approach views all individuals not as potential perpetrators or victims, but as empowered bystanders who can recognize and confront harassment and abuse before, during and after the fact. This will be an interactive workshop.
