Dr. Amanda Adams will introduce "the unique risks posed by fieldwork…. [and] practical intervention scenarios, [to guide] participants on how to be an active and engaged bystander, report incidents, and plan field settings to minimize risk. Armed with these tools, participants can play a role in ensuring that field settings are safer, more equitable, and more welcoming for the next generation of field scientists."

Denim Day, April 28: Denim Day began after a judge in Italy overturned a rape conviction blaming the survivor for the rape because "she wore tight jeans." Show your support of survivors and dismantling the belief that clothing is a cause for sexual violence by wearing denim. Take a picture of yourself and display on social media using the #ESFdenimday and #denimday2021.
