The conference’s subtitle was “Achieving Cultural Change through Data and an Evaluation Mindset: Better People, Better Leaders, Better Nation.”

In addition to multiple informative breakout sessions, the day included a Leadership Forum, moderated by Kristina Johnson, SUNY chancellor, in which a distinguished panel of engaged military leaders shared their experiences in preventing sexual assault and sexual harassment, as well as their views on data-driven decision making and the importance of measuring the effectiveness of prevention systems.

A second leadership panel presented on “Legal and Policy Perspectives,” a discussion on legal compliance. This panel was comprised of leaders in the legal and academic communities who shared their views on shaping a culture of respect, transparency, and safety for all.

Glenn had the opportunity to speak with several panelists and attendees, and to learn about valuable resources and potential guest speakers for the IUP community.
