In June 2018, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will release a report on the impact of sexual harassment in academia on the career advancement of women in the scientific, technical, and medical workforce. 

To share the report’s findings and recommendations, IRWG and the Office of Research will host 3 public panel discussions in Fall 2018. These presentations will feature guest panelists from the National Academies committee discussing the report alongside experts from the University of Michigan community. Each panel will include a summary of the report, discussion from committee members, commentary from disciplinary experts, and Q&A with the audience. This event is part of the Sexual Harassment in Academic STEM Fields: 2018 Panel Discussion Series. To learn more, please visit irwg.umich.edu.
