Direct service providers have the unique opportunity to identify and help victims. 28% of identified victims saw a health or social service provider at least once during their trafficking ordeal.

Cristy Dieterich, MPH from the San Francisco Department of Public Health-Newcomers Health Program with the Cross Bay Collaborative to Combat Human Trafficking will be presenting this session.

"The gender flip first occurred last spring. It was the first time since at least 1993 - as far back as university enrollment records are digitized - that more women enrolled in an introductory computer science course. It was likely the first time ever."

Organizational Spotlight: AAUW SF

                             

At Alliance for Girls' 2nd Annual Conference, Cathy Corcoran, President of AAUW of San Francisco, will present AAUW's recent study titled Crossing the Line: Sexual Harassment at School

This study presents the most comprehensive research to date on sexual harassment in schools, grades 7–12. "I already knew sexual harassment was prevalent before reading this study, but I had no idea how prevalent," Cathy explained, "It is critical that the community know more about this issue and start taking necessary steps to protect our girls."

AAUWSF sent a copy of Crossing the Line's executive summary to every middle and high school in San Francisco. Cathy hopes the report will be used as an educational tool for teachers and school administrators. Understanding the subtleties, cultural implications and online manifestations of sexual harassment will help teachers and service providers recognize the signs and stop harassment before it starts. 

AAUWSF's mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.
