“It never occurred to me that I wouldn't be safe at a conference with other chemists,” “Nicole” said in a C&EN article about sexual harassment in chemistry. Although we hear stories about sexual harassment in the entertainment industry, it is also pervasive in science. Surveys show that across the nation nearly a quarter of all women have been harassed at work. Join Kate Clancy, Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Illinois, as she discusses her several publications on sexual harassment in the sciences, as well as upcoming work in engineering. During this interactive broadcast, Dr. Clancy will also talk about how universities and individuals should address the problem moving forward.
