Presentations and Workshops
Sarah regularly facilitates panel discussions for nonprofit, entertainment and business leaders and others who are willing to dive into conversations about sexual violence. She will occasionally lead workshops or presentations on topics such as Controversy: How to Communicate About Taboo Topics, A 360 View on Sexual Violence for Leaders, or a custom topic upon request.
Sarah is available for keynote presentations at professional conferences, employer events, on college campuses, and other public events. Sarah’s keynote, based on her TEDx talk, is an ideal way to break the ice on sexual violence or harassment conversations inside organizations or communities coming to terms with its impact.
As someone who is comfortable getting uncomfortable, Sarah is available to help facilitate small group discussions with business leaders, athletes, fraternity leaders and other groups of men (or women) who are beginning to explore their connection to sexual violence survivors and the issue at-large. These smaller, more intimate conversations are designed to create the non-judgmental environment in which real conversation, learning, and self-assessment can take place. Sarah has also advised business leaders on developing a comprehensive strategy, beyond legal, to address sexual violence and harassment.
