Description: A common perception of harassment is of a single traumatic event, often from the victim’s vantage: “And then he. . . .” Panelists discuss the repetitive durational trauma of harassment as a practice that can continue at an institution for decades, one that can be microaggressions that last for years, and one that can still affect a victim long after the behavior has stopped. The focus is how to identify, address, and change such harassment in the workplace.
