Babson offers a variety of resources to students who are involved in gender-based discrimination. Resources are available to both victims/survivors and those accused of gender discrimination, as well as anyone else affected by the discrimination such as the friends of a victim/survivor.
Due to the sensitive nature of gender discrimination, not all resources are confidential. Before reaching out to a resource be sure to understand whether or not that resource is a confidential resource. A full list of both confidential and non-confidential resources is available at How to Report.
