Upcoming Women’s Center Events

 
 

Date/Time/Place

Event

September 5 - October 16The “red zone” is shorthand for the first six weeks at the beginning of the school year when a disproportionate number of campus sexual assaults take place. The Department of Justice has identified the period between students’ arrival on campus in late August and Thanksgiving break as the stretch of time when sexual violence perpetration is most likely to occur. This does not mean that sexual and interpersonal violence are not perpetrated at other times of the year. At UW Oshkosh, the Red Zone is a six-week series of sexual violence prevention programming organized by departments and organizations across campus.

Exploiting Trust - The Human Element of Security

Security protocols are often built on trust --trust which is exploited by attackers like me. From email to phone communications, attackers study how to insert themselves within your trusted circle and protocols to leverage that trust against you. This keynote will dive into the anatomy of trust exploitation in real world social engineering attacks, walk through step-by-step examples of attacks happening during COVID-19, and the steps you can take to protect your data, money, security, and privacy from real world attackers, even during a global crisis.

Funding for this event is provided by the Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership through their Speaker Grant program.

University Speaker Series: Dominique Jackson

From fleeing persecution as a transgender woman in her home country of Trinidad and Tobago to starring in television hits, Dominique Jackson has seen it all. After experiencing homelessness and rejection from her own family, Jackson has used her success to shed light on the challenges transgender women like herself too often face. Jackson stars in Pose, an FX television series about the African American and Latinx LGBTQ+ gender-nonconforming ballroom culture scene in the 1980s and 1990s. For Jackson, her character is more than just someone she plays in front of the cameras. She is a representation of what Jackson and many transgender women go through when they lose their families after coming out.

Sponsored by University Speaker Series.
