Design is everything — so how do we deepen its impact to create more equitable workplaces and communities for women in Nebraska?

Sara Eliason, from WCA Omaha, will facilitate a sexual harassment and assault workshop to discuss this question. This workshop is the first in a four-part workshop series.

Free and open to all genders and fields of work, this workshop series partners with community leaders in women’s rights to confront four different challenges women face. Using design thinking and social ecology theory, you’ll address these dilemmas with a small team you’ve never met, limited resources, and additional problems thrown in along the way, emerging with a greater perspective on how to create gender equity in Nebraska and beyond.

100% of your optional $10 donation will benefit WCA Omaha, which provides services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Douglas County.

This workshop will be held on Thursday, March 8, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Sozo Coffeehouse, 1314 Jones Street, Omaha, NE 68102
