The persistence of sexual harassment and its adverse impact on women’s careers in our nation’s colleges and universities is jeopardizing more rapid and sustained progress in closing the “gender gap” in science, engineering, and medicine. On November 9, 2018, join colleagues, leaders in academia, and other experts in building on the recent report Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Science, Engineering, and Medicine, to develop and strategize plans on how to prevent sexual harassment in academia.
Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine explores the influence of sexual harassment in academia on the career advancement of women in the scientific, technical, and medical workforce.
This report reviews the research on the extent to which women in the fields of science, engineering, and medicine are victimized by sexual harassment and examines the existing information on the extent to which sexual harassment in academia negatively impacts the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women pursuing scientific, engineering, technical, and medical careers. It also identifies and analyzes the policies, strategies and practices that have been the most successful in preventing and addressing sexual harassment in these settings.
