Welcome to the E-discussion
Welcome everyone to this e-discussion on Addressing Sexual Harassment in Research Organizations. We will discuss the occurrence of, response to and prevention of sexual harassment in research performing and research funding organizations, and the higher education sector more broadly.
My name is Claartje Vinkenburg, I am an in-house consultant with Portia ltd, and in the ACT project I am leading the ERA priority group on careers. This e-discussion is the first activity that this group holds. Next to questions to our experts, we welcome and encourage any lessons learned and practice examples of "what works".
Before we begin I would like to repeat four simple rules of engagement to keep the conversation going and flowing.
− use the "reply" button to respond directly to posts in the thread;
− refresh the page regularly, using buttons in the address bar or the bottom of the page;
− do not worry about spelling and grammar - we will polish the final version later;
− do not mention names or details of sexual harassment cases, respect privacy.
I will start a new comment when we move to the next topic on the agenda. Looking forward!
