Part III will provide empowerment tools and techniques to manage discrimination, bullying, and harassment.

All are welcome. This is a FREE Colorado Film Industry Event.

Beginning with the legal definition of what sexual harassment is, local lawyers, human resource administers, and government officials will explain the laws and what breaks them, plus a comprehensive look at how to make the law work for you if you’ve been victimized.
