The School Safety Advocacy Council, the nation’s leading organization in school safety training and services, announced that Monica Lewinsky will be the featured keynote presenter at their 2018 National Conference on Bullying held March 7-9, 2018 at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada and co-hosted by the Nevada Department of Education and the Washoe County School District.
The conference will feature world renowned keynote speakers, offer over 30 breakout sessions presented by practitioners and experts in the field and a free pre-conference session presented by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights on addressing race and sex-based harassment and discrimination. School Safety Advocacy Council President Sean Burke stated, “With the announcement of Monica Lewinsky and our unmatched lineup of educational content, we currently have over three times the registrations we did last year and expect to fill quickly.”
Monica Lewinsky is a social activist, a global public speaker, a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and a consultant. She advocates for a safer social media environment and addresses such topics as digital resilience + reputation, privacy, cultivating compassion, overcoming shame and equality. Monica’s lens for these societal issues is focused by her myriad unique and profound experiences: working in government — both in the White House and the Pentagon; the investigation that resulted from her time in Washington, D.C.; involvement in media projects as both producer and subject; as an entrepreneur and designer; and lastly, education. Curtis Lavarello, Executive Director of the School Safety Advocacy Council, stated, “We are proud to have Monica share her view of her very public experiences with our attendees” and “We feel our attendees will benefit greatly from Monica’s experience with online victimization.”
Today Monica works with several anti-bullying organizations, including as an Ambassador to both the Diana Award’s Anti-Bullying Program in the UK and Bystander Revolution in the US. Monica sits on the board of the Childhood Resilience Foundation. She advocates for people to #ClickWithCompassion.
