Sun, May 27, 14:00 to 15:15, Hilton Old Town, Floor: M, Dvorak I

Session Submission Type: Meeting


In 2017, the #MeToo movement exposed the widespread nature of sexual harassment across multiple industries in the U.S. Globally, other movements, such as the #LoSHA campaign around harassment in academia in India, also emerged. This Blue Sky Workshop will focus on sexual and racial harassment and hostile climates in higher education and their disproportionate impact on graduate students and early career scholars. How can senior faculty and administrators work to hold perpetrators accountable? What can bystanders do if they witness abuse? What rights do victims have? How can we cultivate safer and more empowering academic departments and communities? Panelists will address these questions and more. Attendees are encouraged to contribute their own questions, concerns, and calls to action.
