"ADVANCE Partnership: #MeTooPoliSci Leveraging a Professional Association to Address Sexual Harassment in Political Science."
"#MeTooPoliSci: Leveraging a Professional Association to Address Sexual Harassment in Political Science"
This project addresses the problem of sexual harassment in political science. The problem impacts the interest, retention, and success of women in this academic profession. The key goals of this project are to improve awareness and behavior of majority-identified colleagues, improve departmental microclimates, and increase department-level attention to inclusion issues. We leverage the influence of a key professional association to scale up adaptations of empirically tested interventions including department climate studies, upstanding bystander training, facilitated department dialogues, and the development of policies that support an improved climate.
