ADVANCEGeo Workshops

Our work is based on a community model for harassment intervention training for academic leaders and faculty that identifies sexual and other types of harassment as scientific misconduct and equips individuals and departments with skills to 1) recognize harassment in different research and educational settings and how it is experienced by individuals with different gender, racial and ethnic identities, 2) implement direct and indirect behaviors to stop harassment (bystander intervention), 3) produce, implement, and enforce ethical codes of conduct, and 4) educate themselves about resources to reduce the harm caused by harassment. A main goal of ADVANCEGeo is to produce material that can be adapted to different training modules, including in-person and online, for departments, and for broader audiences at scientific conferences. We are currently developing training and train-the-trainer materials that will be made publicly available via this site.

Workshop Description: Strategies for Improving Workplace Climate

This short, interactive session (2 hours) describes academic practices and institutional structures that allow for sexual harassment and other hostile behaviors to persist, discuss initiatives to address harassment as research misconduct, and provide training in personal intervention strategies to protect and support targets of harassment. As a result of this session, participants will be able to identify: (1) different ways in which sexual and other types of harassment can manifest in research environments; (2) strategies for bystander intervention, and (3) resources for cultural change in the office, laboratory, and field settings.
