On November 12, 2018, IRWG, in collaboration with the Office of Research, Michigan Medicine's Office for Health Equity and Inclusion, ADVANCE, and support from the College of LSA, and the College of Engineering hosted a panel discussion on sexual harassment in academic medicine. The panel included discussion of a recent report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, which offered key findings on the causes and impacts of sexual harassment, and recommendations for institutional policies, strategies, and practices to address and prevent it.
