Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
President Elizabeth L. Hillman of Mills College, study committee member and report co-author will speak about her study:
"Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine"
A report on sexual harassment released in 2018 by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine documents the extent and impact of sexual harassment in academic STEM fields and makes recommendations about preventing and addressing sexual harassment for institutions, policy-makers, professional societies, and federal agencies. Mills College President Elizabeth L. Hillman, study committee member and report co-author, will summarize the National Academies' consensus report, review the response of academic communities since its release, and suggest the potentially transformative impact on research and innovation of collaborative, inclusive organizations that effectively prevent sexual harassment.
