Join the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for a convocation on developing and implementing policies, procedures, and practices to prevent sexual harassment in academia from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Friday, November 9. Building on the recommendations in the recent report Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Science, Engineering, and Medicine, the event will bring together academic leaders, Title IX and diversity officers, ombuds offices, researchers in sexual harassment, and leaders from professional societies, foundations, and federal agencies to discuss strategies and share promising practices. See a draft agenda. Two viewing locations will be held at the University
