In 2018, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine released the Consensus Study Report, “Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine,” outlining the prevalence and impact of sexual harassment in academia on the career advancement of women in the scientific, technical, and medical workforce.

Three members of the committee that authored the report held a virtual presentation for the Gladstone community to debunk common beliefs in our culture around sexual harassment and address lesser-known facts about sexual harassment

This event was part of Gladstone's Critical Conversations series. Critical Conversations was launched in 2020 as a way for Gladstone community members to challenge and empower themselves by considering different ways of thinking through the lens of others. These discussions will encourage you to reframe or shift your perspective. All community members are encouraged to participate and continue the dialogue outside this forum.
