The Georgia Institute of Technology’s Wellness Empowerment Center (WE Center) is pleased to announce that a search is underway for a VOICE Advocate. VOICE, is Georgia Tech's sexual and relationship violence prevention and survivor support initiative based in the Wellness Empowerment Center. Launched in 2002 and expanded in 2015, VOICE provides support to victim-survivors of sexual violence as well as educates the campus community about healthy relationships and sexual violence. Sexual violence is an umbrella term that includes sexual harassment, stalking, dating and domestic violence, and sexual assault and rape. The mission of VOICE is to create a campus culture that encourages respect, communication, and equity among the Georgia Tech community.

 

VOICE Advocates are primarily responsible for providing confidential crisis intervention and direct services to GT students who are victim-survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and/or stalking. This position is also responsible for responding to phone calls and accompanying students to law enforcement and sexual assault centers during evening and weekend hours as part of VOICE’s 24/7 on-call system. This person will work with a diverse range of stakeholders to ensure Georgia Tech creates policies, practices, and programs that:

  • Promote the idea that sexual violence is preventable; ensure that every member of the Georgia Tech community understands that they have a role in shaping a campus culture of non-violence.
  • Ensure that cases of sexual violence are managed with respect and equity and that students receive confidential and supportive resources.
  • Ensure that Georgia Tech's policies relating to sexual violence are updated, comprehensive, supportive, and reflecting best practices.
  • Engage faculty, staff, and administrators in collaborative sexual violence prevention and response activities in order to garner institutional support for a violence-free campus.

 

The goals of this position are supported by the Cultivate Well-Being Action & Transformation Roadmap for students, which advances one of the six areas of focus in the Institute’s 2020-2030 Strategic Plan. Please apply here if you are interested in this position. Feel free to pass this announcement along to anyone you feel would be qualified for this position. If you have additional questions or concerns regarding this position, please reach out to Joi Alexander by email.
