We help you care for your entire community. Embedding empathy throughout our work reinforces your integrity and helps everyone move towards healing.
Why Hadley Rock?
Trust and integrity are the bedrock of your school’s reputation. Investigating sexual misconduct at your school creates an opportunity for either building the community’s trust or raising questions about both your leadership and your institution’s integrity. It is a time of extreme vulnerability for everyone, from the Board to survivors and everyone in between. Hadley Rock helps you plan for and navigate the uncertain terrain, working collaboratively with your team.
We start from a place of empathy rather than risk management. We acknowledge the risk and rely on others involved to focus on risk and liability. Our role is to make sure that everyone involved is treated with dignity and respect. This creates a holistic approach we call using a “survivor-informed” perspective. Focusing on empathy and the desire to learn and heal establishes a commitment to uncovering the truth and taking care of your community. This approach is ultimately the best for both your school and your community of alums, parents, students, faculty and staff.
Our survivor-informed perspective ensures that you care for all participants and the broader community. This helps establish and build trust while also conveying your desire and commitment to work towards healing.
We help you create an environment where survivors feel safe discussing their experiences. We also support you in the ongoing response and focus on prevention.
“Jamie has provided remarkable insight throughout this process. Through his own experience, he understands how to support the whole school community while also recognizing the institutional challenges. He has been a great asset to us, helping us work toward healing through this challenging time.”
“Jamie’s approachable manner, candor and poignant story helped our faculty and staff understand a challenging topic from a personal and systemic perspective. The workshop also gave us practical tools and talking points that will help us maintain a safe and healthy school.”
