Power-Based Interpersonal Violence (PBIV) and Title IX

This class is facilitated by Title IX staff.   We ask that all employees sign up for one of these sessions as there are many updates from the previous Title IX training.

In promoting a safe, inclusive environment for all community members, Emerson prohibits power-based interpersonal violence (PBIV), including sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, and relationship violence.  As Emerson employees, we want you to know how to access confidential resources, how to report a concern, and various response options.  This workshop will also help you understand your role as a “responsible employee” obligated to report to the Title IX Coordinator any potential matter involving PBIV that comes to your attention.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 provides that "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."  This workshop will also explore the impact of the new Title IX Regulations on College policy and processes for all students, staff, and faculty.

We welcome all Emerson staff and faculty, so please let us know how we might best provide you with access and support your ability to participate in this workshop. For information about on and off-campus resources, reporting a concern, and Emerson’s PBIV Policy, please check out the Access, Equity & Title IX website.
