View ‘Report on Sexual Harassment of Women’ webinar June 12

Join your Vanderbilt colleagues from the Office of Academic and Faculty Affairs, Office of Inclusive Excellence, College of Arts and Science, School of Engineering and School of Medicine-Basic Sciences in viewing a webinar on the public release of a new report, “Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.”

An ad hoc committee under the oversight of the Committee on Women, Science and Medicine—which is a standing committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine—prepared the report. The report presents a comprehensive review of the research, experiences and effects of sexual harassment on women and their careers in science, engineering and medicine. In addition to evidence-based findings, the report provides recommendations for how organizations can prevent and address sexual harassment in academic settings, specifically in science, engineering and medicine.

The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, June 12, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. (CDT) and will be screened in the Engineering and Science Building, Room 044. Registration is required, and light food and refreshments will be served.

Those who cannot attend the viewing in ESB 044 can view the webinar on their own. They will need to register in advance. Those who plan to watch the webinar in ESB 044 are not required to register through the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine’s website.
