(Sexual Harassment: Awareness, Response, and Education)
The SHARE Center offers confidential counseling and consultation to VUMC employees and Allied Health students who have experienced or witnessed workplace sexual harassment. The SHARE Center is designed to support individuals throughout their experiences and responses to harassment, including before or after making an official report to Human Resources. We also provide education and programming about sexual harassment to the broader VUMC community in order to increase knowledge and awareness and to promote equitable relationships among colleagues. Part of The SHARE Center's mission is to increase transparency and confidence regarding the Medical Center's anti-sexual harassment policies.
Organizationally, The SHARE Center is under the umbrella of Faculty and Staff Health and Wellness, within the same division as Work/Life Connections - EAP. The SHARE Center works closely with Work/Life Connections - EAP to facilitate the transition to short term counseling and support related to other concerns as needed.
