Consortium to Prevent and Address Sexual Harassment in STEMM

October 3, 2018

The American Anthropological Assocation was among the leaders from some 70 professional societies convened in Washington, DC, on October 1 to discuss the issue of harassment in the science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medical (STEMM) fields. The meeting was hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the American Geophysical Union (AGU), and EducationCounsel (EC). The societies came together to share concerns and needs, discuss policies and frameworks, and make plans to continue the discussion by developing a consortium of societies for professional conduct to prevent and address sexual harassment in STEMM. In coming months, the consortium will work collectively to develop customizable model frameworks for systems, policies, and practices to combat sexual harassment and a toolkit of practical resource materials for use by societies and institutions. The societies can – and will – collectively respond to address sexual harassment, as recommended in the National Academies’ June 2018 consensus report.

The AAA released our own Comprehensive Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault in June.
