This webinar is hosted by the Battered Women's Justice Project and is open to the public. 

Content 

This webinar introduces the audience to the latest guidance from the Department of Justice (DOJ) with respect to identifying and responding to gender bias in law enforcement, as well as rape crisis and domestic violence organizations. An overview of the legal requirements is paired with potential solutions. A number of potential paths to effectively responding to gender bias are discussed, including: a DOJ Office of Violence Against Women Roundtable on the topic; the recent Baltimore consent decree; and the presenter’s professional experience in facilitating support groups for male victims of violence, among others.
