The Equity and Title IX team is happy to offer workshops/trainings to Berklee students, faculty, and staff. 

Play Your Part: Improving the Culture at Berklee Through Bystander Intervention (60–90 minutes)

Do you want to learn what you can do to create a safe environment for all members of the Berklee community? Sexual violence prevention is everyone's responsibility. In this interactive workshop, students of all genders will learn tools to recognize potentially sexually violent situations and safely intervene, as well as resources to support survivors of sexual violence in our community.

This presentation also covers the role of the responsible employee. All Berklee employees are considered responsible employees (with the exception of licensed professional counselors acting in that professional capacity), meaning they must report violations or potential violations of the Equity Policy that they observe or become aware of. In our roles as responsible employees, we can take active steps to ensure that every community member can work, learn, and teach in an environment that is safe and inclusive.

Presentations by Request

The Equity team is available to conduct 45–90 minute presentations/workshops by request for student groups, classes, residence halls, and academic/staff departments.

These programs are focused on topics related to sexual and relationship violence prevention, such as:

  • Introduction to the Equity team, Equity Policy, and responsible employee policy;
  • Understanding consent;
  • Bystander intervention for sexual violence prevention; and
  • Healthy relationships and intimate partner violence/dating violence awareness.

Additionally, the Equity team can tailor programs to meet the needs of the group and can provide additional trainings on topics not listed above, upon request.

Please allow at least three weeks for your request prior to your preferred date. You can learn about the Diversity and Inclusion offerings.
