Department Colloquia pres.

Physics & Astronomy Special Joint Colloquium | Sexual Harassment in STEM: A View from the National Academies

Dr. Anna Kirkland, Director, Institute for Research on Women & Gender and Professor of Women’s Studies | Dr. Lilia Cortina, Professor of Psychology, Women’s Studies and Management & Organizations

Persistent sexual harassment of women in science has remained a challenge for decades. It jeopardizes progress in closing the gender gap, damages research integrity, and results in a costly loss of talent. In 2016, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine assembled a committee to conduct a study on this problem. The committee published a comprehensive report in 2018 titled, "Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine." The report identifies key findings on the causes and consequences of sexual harassment, and lays out recommendations for institutional policies, strategies, and practices to address and prevent it. U-M Professors Lilia Cortina and Anna Kirkland were two members of that committee. In this talk they will review key findings from the report and discuss implications at the department level.
