“mandatory sexual assault prevention”
How long before other school’s implement policies like this one? Is there a similar program for Hollywood?

Harvard athletics forces students to attend sexual assault and gender training programs
Harvard’s Athletics Department is ordering student athletes to attend a total of five training programs related to gender, bias and sexual assault.
The slate of programs will include “mandatory sexual assault prevention and conflict resolution trainings for athletes and department staff, as well as an unconscious bias training for staff and coaches,” according to The Harvard Crimson.
The department will also engage in “diversity dialogues,” as well as “Giving Voice to Values,” an event held in August meant to to “align the values of the College, the department and each individual team together,” the article reports.
In October of last year, The Crimson unearthed and publicized the existence of a sexual “scouting report” made by the men’s soccer team about members of the women’s team. An investigation by the Office of General Counsel revealed that this list was an annual tradition that had been ongoing for four years. Harvard subsequently canceled the remainder of the team’s season.
Reached for comment via email, Tim Williamson, the associate director of Harvard’s Athletics Department, provided The College Fix with a message that athletics director Bob Scalise sent out to Harvard’s student-athletes. That email makes reference to “a number of significant challenges last year” regarding “a range of issues, including team cultures, coaching philosophies, and equity in the support of our teams.”
