Event Details:

Join us for a lunch discussion of the recently released National Academies' report, "Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine," on Thursday, August 23, 12:00-1:30 p.m. 

This discussion is intended particularly for graduate students, postdocs, and faculty, with consideration of reactions to the report, and recommendations for Stanford. We anticipate a lively, informative, and proactive session in terms of considering ways to improve our academic cultures to reduce gender and sexual harassment.
