On March 12 and 13, 2018, the New Museum organized four workshops on sexual harassment for cultural workers. Read some of the takeaways.

In light of recent, widespread allegations of sexual misconduct in every sector, the New Museum is organizing a series of four workshops in order to provide tools, support, and guidance for both leaders and workers in the arts to combat sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Arts workers of all genders are encouraged to attend. Each session will start with a twenty-minute introduction followed by an interactive workshop. Sessions are limited to 100 participants. Each session is $5 to attend. The workshops are organized by Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director, with Johanna Burton, Keith Haring Director and Curator of Education and Public Engagement; Margot Norton, Curator; and Karen Wong, Deputy Director.
