What if, instead of avoiding uncomfortable conversations about sexual violence, we could just get better at having them? In her talk, Sarah Beaulieu, a survivor, writer and advocate, unpacks the five key lessons she's learned about the mindset necessary to transform stigmatized and judgmental conversations about sexual violence to conversations that promote healing and change.

Sarah Beaulieu is a Boston-based writer, speaker and advocate who has spent the last several years interviewing men and women about sexual violence. Sarah writes frequently about sexual violence with her work appearing in the Providence Journal, AskMen.com, Cognoscenti (WBUR), the Nonprofit Quarterly, Commonhealth (WBUR) and the Stanford Social Innovation Review. She graduated from Brown University with a degree in women's studies and earned an MBA from Boston College's Carroll School of Management. Sarah serves on the board of the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, one of the oldest and largest rape crisis centers in the country. Sarah lives in Boston with her husband, Marc, two children and crazy dog.

Sarah's mission is to spark 100,000 conversations about sexual violence with men. You can join the conversation and follow her work at www.sarahbeaulieu.me.
