Impacts of Sexual Harassment in Academia Fourth Committee Meeting and Webcast

October 4, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm EDT

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Committee on the Impacts of Sexual Harassment in Academia will be holding an information gathering meeting on October 4th, 2017 from 10:30 am to 3 pm. The meeting will be held in Cambridge, MA and will also be webcast. For more details and to register, please see the announcement below.

This National Academies committee has contracted with RTI International to gather information about the impacts of gender-related experiences on women in science, engineering, and medical fields. RTI International is conducting one-hour, in-depth telephone interviews with approximately 40 women faculty members in science, engineering, and medical fields at research institutions who have been personally impacted by any of the following behaviors in a professional setting within the past 5 years:

  • Someone making repeated, unwanted sexual advances to you
  • Someone using pressure or manipulation to get you to agree to sexual contact
  • Inappropriate or sexual remarks, sexual-oriented jokes, or comments about cognitive or intellectual sex differences

If you meet these criteria and are interested in being considered for the study, please complete a brief screening form here.

Thank you for your support!
