Collective Voices Beyond #MeToo: Session 1
Karen Runde, Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship
In light of the #metoo movement, we propose a two-part session to create and establish a collective voice on behavioral norms in the social enterprise and impact investing communities as well as an exploration of how to balance zero tolerance and restorative justice. Session 1 will be an interactive workshop and Session 2 will be a combined fishbowl panel and discussion. More information about Session 1: This will be an interactive workshop on proximity and power through small group discussions. The session will be facilitated by Avary Kent of Conveners.org and will abide by Chatham House rules. The proposed structure will be to count off into small groups of 3-4 to give space for participants to process, reflect, and share incidents of when they felt they did or did not have power and more explicitly incidences of sexual harassment/assault in the social entrepreneur/impact investing space. It is important to share stories from participant’s personal journey to help ground and emphasize the lived experience.
