2 Part Series on Sexual Harassment in Academia

The Carolina Seminar Series, The Carolina Women’s Center and WISDOM (Women in Science Deserve Opportunities and Mentoring) hosted a 2 Part Series on Sexual Harassment in Academia. 

For Part 1, a webinar, Dr. Karen Kelsky  shared what she learned from conducting the Sexual Harassment in the Academy Survey, including thoughts on the range and scope of sexual harassment in the academic setting, patterns of predation, options for survivors, recommendations to institutions, and particular vulnerabilities of women of color and of queer and transgender women.

Part 2 was a workshop geared towards faculty of all genders and ranks. Through interactive discussion and activities led by campus and community facilitators, the workshop addressed the continuum of harassment, how bystanders can intervene effectively, and UNC resources and reporting options around sexual discrimination and harassment.



The APWIMS/WISDOM Fall Meeting  focused on mentoring women in the medical sciences.  Susan Girdler and Amelia Drake  briefly presented relevant UNC data on the subject to be followed by a facilitated group discussion.



We were so fortunate to have Deans Joanne Jordan (Executive Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development), Wesley Burks (Executive Dean for UNC’s SOM), and Paul Godley (Vice Dean for Diversity and Inclusion) serve as panelists for our May 1st spring luncheon on equity and inclusion.
