This class was tough.
I would Recommend this Course to anyone whether safety is your interest or not. Not only was Professor Ingalls fantastic and funny. She was extremely Passionate about what she was teaching, she used real personal experiences to relate to the topics, we watched very touch documentaries, and my personal favorite aspect of the course was how she made us all feel welcomed and how she made us collaborate and get to know one another. Not a lot of classes are as welcoming as Professor Ingalls.
The highlights of this course for me were getting the chances to be working so close to all my classmates and my Professor. We had many open discussions about topics that are often times over looked, such as work place bullying, harassment, gender equality in the work place which came to a huge surprise to me that there still to date is so much discrimination against women. Sharing real personal happenings was very touching and I feel like I learned more from listening to others than I could have reading in any book. By the end of the course everybody felt so comfortable that students including myself couldn't wait to come to class and share.
