Rory is a consultant, advisor, and trainer on sexual harassment, bias, and diversity & inclusion. Her work on gender and inclusion has spanned workplace sexual harassment; sexual harassment and assault at Harvard and U.S. college campuses nationally; and sexual violence in Latin America.
Rory's sexual harassment work goes beyond legal compliance to integrate behavioral science insights to further more effective prevention and response. She tailors content to a wide-range of clients, from small startups to large tech firms in today's headlines. She currently works with ReadySet, where she runs workshops and consults on organizational policy and strategy.
As an Adrienne Hall Fellow at Harvard University, Rory developed an interactive training module on sexual harassment and assault and manual to guide facilitators. The interactive module trained participants with tools to better navigate situations of gender-based violence. She submitted written comments on campus sexual assault policies and programs to the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault and to the U.S. Department of Education for rulemaking on the Violence Against Women Act. She published Op-Eds in the Boston Globe and Harvard Kennedy School Review, and was featured in the New York Times, Associated Press, NPR, and CBS This Morning. Her work on sexual harassment and assault was recognized with Harvard’s Holly Taylor Sargent Award for Women’s Advancement.
In Latin America, she researched violence against women in Colombia, Peru and Guatemala. She consulted on the development and implementation of post-conflict policies, programs, and practices that promote women's participation and address women's unique concerns.
