BUILD: Traumatic Impacts: Connecting Race, Gender, and Violence

The history of the anti-sexual violence movement in the United States is rich, deep, vibrant and also fraught with inequalities related to gender identity, sexual orientation, social class, race, and ability/disability among other social identities. This session will explore the origins of rape victim/survivor advocacy as social justice and provide participants with the opportunity to consider how this history impacts our ability to support members of the UI community who are survivors.

The Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity (BUILD) certificate is an initiative of the Chief Diversity Office that gives UI faculty and staff the opportunity to gain strategic knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive campus environment.
