Participating in a student internship can be an important part of every student's higher education experience. However, most students, both male and female, have no idea what to do when confronted with sexual harassment. Unwanted advancements or sexually explicitly gestures and jokes can be damaging to a student's confidence both during the internship and when seeking employment after graduation. In addition, many students are unaware when their own well-intentioned conduct is viewed as unprofessional and offensive, putting them in jeopardy both academically and professionally. Learn the basics of how to identify and respond to sexual harassment as well as how to avoid engaging in behavior that could be perceived as sexual harassment by others.
