What is a challenge you face doing Title IX work?
As an administrator at a Community College, I wear many “hats” in addition to being the Title IX Coordinator. It can be challenging to switch between roles and know how to prioritize, especially in times of crisis.
What is an ATIXA resource or tool that has aided you?
The ListServ is a priceless resource. ATIXA staff are so responsive and helpful to the questions that arise, no matter how big or small the issue is. It’s like having a personal consultation team right at your fingertips!
What is one piece of advice you would offer your fellow practitioners?
At the end of the day (however long that is!) when you turn the light switch off in your office as you leave (or however you signal that you’re leaving work–turning the computer off, leaving your dining room table, etc.), mentally switch off the Title IX Coordinator part of you. You’ve done the best you can do for today…good job! Now it’s time to be and do the rest of what makes you an incredible human being. Leave the work at work.
