Institutions of all kinds, both formal and informal, shape our lives. They also reflect as well as influence our culture. Regardless of how honorable their intent, educational, military, corporate and religious institutions often unwittingly attract, conceal and protect rapists and sexual predators. Responding professionals can benefit by understanding how these cultural bulwarks can become havens for sexual predators, and how to work with institutions to best protect their members and prevent infiltration.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Explain how institutions (both formal/hierarchical and informal/unorganized) shape our culture, including perceptions about sex, gender and power. 
  • Describe how well-meaning institutions can “close ranks” around investigations, minimize or hide reports of abuse, and protect themselves at the expense of their members.
  • Identify strategies for engaging with institutional leaders to prevent predatory infiltration and respond fairly and effectively to reports of abuse.
