AAMC/FASEB Hosting Webinar on NAS Sexual Harassment Report
The AAMC and the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) are hosting the sixth and final webinar in their 2018 National Academies reports webinar series. Study Director Frazier Benya, PhD, of the National Academies, will unpack the key findings of the report "Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine," focusing on two essential recommendations: 1) addressing the most common form of sexual harassment – gender harassment and 2) moving beyond legal compliance to address culture and climate change. This webinar will also feature examples of institutional implementation. The webinar is being held on April 22, 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET and free registration is required.
The NIH released February 28 a major statement on its efforts to address sexual harassment, acknowledging the problem’s seriousness with an apology: “NIH has been part of the problem…We are determined to become part of the solution.”
