I talk with Rahel Bayar, a former sex crimes prosecutor, about her career at the Bronx DA’s office. She shares why she felt compelled to work with victims of sexual abuse, how that led her to work in abuse prevention, and why she wants us to approach sexual abuse like crossing the street.
Rahel Bayar, CEO, is a former sex crimes and child abuse prosecutor who has worked in the field of sexual misconduct and abuse prevention for over a decade. She built her career on creating safe spaces and facilitating change in workplaces globally. Rahel recently served as a Managing Director in the Sexual Misconduct Consulting & Investigations division of T&M Protection Resources, a global security and consulting firm. Previously, she spent many years as an Assistant District Attorney in both the Child Abuse/Sex Crimes and Domestic Violence Bureaus at the Bronx District Attorney’s office.
Rahel has piloted leadership training and child safety best practices training at multiple summer camps across the US & Canada and is a consultant to camp directors. Ms. Bayar is the author of a curriculum on teaching abuse prevention in specific faith- based communities and has been featured on webinars for camps, schools and parents on preventing sexual abuse of children. She serves on multiple faith based child protection committees, on the advisory council of Ta’amod: Transforming Jewish Workplaces, has co-authored articles on sexual abuse and was recognized by The Jewish Week 36 Under 36 in 2017 for her activism and efforts towards preventing sexual misconduct and abuse, particularly against children.
