DMICE postdoctoral fellow, Mitzi Boardman, D.D.S., M.S. and Karen Eden, Ph.D., professor of medical informatics and clinical epidemiology, have been participating in planning with School of Medicine Dean Sharon Anderson, M.D. for a much needed workshop on sexual harassment awareness for students and fellows at OHSU. “In the moment when it’s happening you kind of go gray—is this right? Is this wrong? Did I do something to give the impression that this is okay?” said Dr. Boardman. “It’s much easier to not tell someone. It’s important to know what the resources are and what to do.” The word spread quickly and OHSU senior leadership immediately supported the effort and expanded the plans to be campus-wide for everyone. A series of campus dialogues was born.
The OHSU Sexual Harassment Awareness Dialogues are:
- Wednesday, Jan. 31, Richard Jones Hall 4340, noon to 1 p.m., listening session with senior leadership
- Tuesday, Feb. 27, Mackenzie Hall 1115, noon to 1 p.m., open lunch conversation
- Tuesday, March 13, Doernbecher Vey Auditorium, noon to 2 p.m., workshops
