Monday, February 4th, 2019
10-11:00 am
N219 Elliott Hall

Dr. Jennifer L. Berdahl – Professor
Department of Sociology
University of British Columbia

The #MeToo movement has highlighted the ubiquity of sexual harassment, as well as its costs — to its targets, and increasingly, to its perpetrators and the organizations that tolerate them. This talk presents two decades of research into sex-based harassment that reveals its systemic patterns, forms, and the organizational cultures in which it thrives.

Jennifer L. Berdahl (PhD, Social Psychology, University of Illinois) is a Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of British Columbia. Her research focuses on the social psychology of gender and power at work, with a focus on sexual harassment. Berdahl regularly appears in the media to discuss her research and contemporary gender issues at work and serves as an expert witness on individual and class action sex discrimination cases in the U.S. and Canada.

iMen (Indigenous and Males of Color) Retreat:
Color, Culture, Identity & Consciousness

Saturday, February 9, 2019, 8:00am – 6:00pm
312 Bruininks Hall

Registration is NOW OPEN for the iMen (Indigenous and Males of Color) Retreat! The retreat will be on Saturday, February 9, 2019 from 8am-6pm, with check-in and breakfast starting at 8am. This retreat is FREE and open to currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students who identify as indigenous and/or a student of color at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

The purpose of the iMen: Indigenous and Male of Color Retreat is to provide male-identified students of color a place to build community, learn tips and strategies on successfully navigating the college experience, and continuing the necessary conversation around masculinity and manhood. We are aiming to accomplish these goals through an opening plenary with a keynote speaker, affinity groups and breakout sessions. There will be a closing plenary that we will use to build a collective with the participants and begin exploring “where do we go from here” as male-identified indigenous and students of color at the University of Minnesota. We will wrap the retreat with an open-mic space created to allow the participants to express themselves through different artistic mediums of their choice as a way of continuing to build community and collectivism.

Link TO RSVP: https://z.umn.edu/IndigenousMalesofColorRetreat

If you and/or your students have any questions or need any additional information, please reach out to Joseph Ballard II (jballard@umn.edu), Alexander Hines (ahines@umn.edu) and Gayle Smaller Jr (smaller@umn.edu).
