Throughout the country, people are talking about sexual harassment—and academia is no exception.

Dr. Sheila Evans Widnall, Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Dr. Frazier Benya, director of the NASEM Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education, will discuss the study’s findings and their impact. Come learn about the next steps in the movement to end gender-based harassment in higher education.
