Kathryn Clancy, Ph.D., will facilitate the webinar. She is a co-author of the recent National Academies report on sexual harassment of women in STEM and is a widely recognized expert in the area of sexual harassment in academic science. She is an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Illinois.

You don’t have to come to MAC Hall to join this webinar. It is free and open to anyone with an OHSU email address. To access this and other webinars, you need to set up your NCFDD account, which only takes a few seconds.

The purpose of this webinar is to describe the reality of the lived experience of harassment in academic settings and offer paths for improving climate and taking personal responsibility for those times we have power over others.

Clancy will define sexual harassment and explore gender harassment in particular, as the seemingly “lesser” form of harassment that can have worse personal and professional consequences for academic women and gender minorities.

Everyone is invited to this event: All genders, all researchers, postdocs, program administrators, students — anyone in the OHSU community.
