YaleWomen of Northern California present Preventing Sexual Violence: The Workplace, the College Campus, and Other Sexual Ecologies
Yale Alumni Association, Yale Club of San Francisco, and YaleWomen of Northern California present
Preventing Sexual Violence: The Workplace, the College Campus, and Other Sexual Ecologies
How do we eliminate sexual violence and other forms of harassment that are so often prevalent within institutional settings? What useful tools are supplied by legal and regulatory structures such as Title IX and the Campus SaVE Act – and where do those structures fall short? YaleWomen of Northern California invites you to join a conversation with Yale faculty members Melanie Boyd and Inderpal Grewal. Drawing on broad interdisciplinary research, as well as their own work, they offer conceptual insights and practical strategies for creating institutional cultures in which diverse groups of people can flourish.
Melanie Boyd is the director of Yale’s Office of Gender and Campus Culture, an assistant dean in the Yale College Dean’s Office, and a lecturer in Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies.
Inderpal Grewal is the chair of the Women’s Gender & Sexuality Studies program at Yale; she is a professor of WGSS, Anthropology, and American Studies.

Get your hands in the soil to celebrate the Summer Solstice by tending to the Angelic Organics
Learning Center’s Eat 2 Live community garden (http://everythinggoode2l.org/) .
This garden is the first phase in the creation of a farm business incubator at the site and is a
partnership between the Englewood community, Angelic Organics Learning Center
(learngrowconnect.com), Real Men Charities (realmencook.com), and the City of Chicago.
The garden is located at S. 71St and Princeton St., next to Yale School, one block west of Yale St.,
and one block east of Harvard St. This coincidence of names presents a unique opportunity for
Harvard, Princeton and Yale alums to join together to make a difference in their namesake area
Projects will include typical summer garden chores - weeding, watering, maybe even
harvesting. We'll supply gardening tools but not gloves (recommended). Please bring your
own water and be aware that there is no bathroom facility at the site. The nearest is the
McDonald’s at 69th and Vincennes.
