Dear Alumni,

As a reminder, BGC is offering a workshop on responding to harassment exclusively for BGC students, staff, and alums who identify as members of the Asian/American Pacific Islander community. This workshop is part of a series of three trainings this spring under the “Inclusive BGC” for students, faculty, and staff; BGC will open these trainings to the alumni community as well as space permits. More information on this training is included below.

Workshop for BGC’s AAPI Community
Friday, May 14, 3–4 pm ET

As part of its spring series of trainings to make BGC a more just and equitable institution, BGC is offering this workshop, “How to Respond to Anti-Asian/American Harassment When It Happens to You,” exclusively for those in the BGC community who identify as Asian, Asian American, and/or Pacific Islander. During this one-hour, highly interactive training you’ll learn Hollaback!’s methodology for responding to harassment: 1) trust your instincts, 2) reclaim your space, and 3) practice resilience. You’ll learn how your identities can shape your experience of harassment and the impact that harassment has on you and your community as a whole. You will learn about what to look for when assessing your safety, and how to determine if responding in the moment is the right action or not. There will also be a deep dive into how to build your resilience on an individual, interpersonal, organizational, community, and societal front. You’ll leave with new tools on how to respond to harassment, whether your response is in the moment while that harassment is happening or long-term. Free; please register by Monday, May 10.
