Livestream and Program:  12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m

Join us in-person or virtually on Tuesday, April 12 for a presentation by Missy Mael, Rape Crisis Center Co-Executive Director. 

Almost ¼ of college students in Madison (UW Madison and Edgewood College) said that they had experienced sexual violence while at college/university in 2018/2019 surveys. According to a downtown safety initiative, sexual assault is the number one most “reported” crime in downtown Madison. This violence continues into and affects employees in the workplace.

Through personal narratives and staggering local statistics, Rape Crisis Center’s Co-Executive Director, Missy Mael, will lead TEMPO Madison members through a presentation about professional and organizational lessons learned, the current climate related to gender-based violence in Dane County, and how we can build and use our leadership skills to change toxic cultural norms for the young people coming up behind us.

TEMPO Madison's Networking Committee is hosting a free Chimera Self-Defense Workshop with the Rape Crisis Center on Tuesday, April 26, 5:30 p.m. at the One Community Bank-Middleton Location. You can sign-up for the workshop here
