SYNOPSIS:

As part of HKU’s HeForShe initiative and to mark International Women’s Day, the CCPL, WRSC, and TWF are proud to welcome Dr Katz to run a workshop on his work of building a culture of prevention of harassment and violence on university campuses. With opening remarks by Professor Peter Mathieson (Vice-chancellor of HKU and HeforShe UN ambassador) Dr Katz will draw on the campus programs he runs in the US, sharing examples and experiences from the US and challenging the audience to confront sexist abuse and explore what it takes to become an empowered bystander: someone who witnesses potentially harmful behaviour and takes action that has the potential to lead to a positive outcome.
