MIT Stata Center, R&D Commons 32 Vassar Street, Cambridge, MA 02139
Stand Up Boston is a free conference dedicated to working with our local community in leveraging information technology and machine learning to combat sexual harassment. It is hosted by the MIT Alumni Association, MIT Critical Data, the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and Harvard University’s Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response. We will be hosting a series of technical and non-technical workshops centered on the theme Inspiring Bystanders to Act. We challenge participants to produce technical and non-technical work that enables greater conversations around bystander intervention and sexual harassment, and lay the foundation for future work. We will also be featuring speakers including Pierre Berastain (Director of the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response at Harvard University) as well as bystander intervention training by the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center.
