Dr. Susana Winkel was invited to participate in "Safe at Work: Reducing Workplace Harassment and Violence for Low-Income and Immigrant Women," a public forum and discussion on sexual harassment and assault in San Francisco.
This forum is organized by the Equity Advisory Committee to the San Francisco Human Rights Commission, and will take place on November 7, 2013, from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm. It will focus on increasing awareness about this epidemic of violence afflicting San Francisco's low-income immigrant women workers. The goals are to identify specific issues confronted by this community of women, and formulate recommendations to the Human Rights Commission and the City of San Francisco to help prevent and /or effectively respond to immigrant women survivors of sexual harassment.
Dr. Winkel was asked to participate based on her record as a distinguished psychoanalyst with an international reputation and professor of psychology at The Wright Institute, clinical professor at UC Berkeley and faculty at the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis. For more than a decade, she has devoted a portion of her practice to treating low-wage immigrant women from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
