Harvey WeinsteinTime’s Person of the Year: The Silence Breakers, and the #MeToo Movement. Over the past year, hundreds of survivors have come forward to share stories of sexual harassment, abuse, and assault. Allegations against some of the biggest and most powerful men in our country have us asking, “will this change anything?”

Dr. Ana Nogales will share real-life stories of her journey as a business woman and clinical psychologist,  and her insight on the “evolution of sexual harassment.”

We invite you to join us for this thought-provoking presentation as Dr. Nogales provides her observations of this enormous cultural shift.
