About this event

Sexual Harassment in higher education is pervasive, harmful, and costly. This has been emphasized by brave women recounting their experiences and by the findings in our report on the Sexual Harassment of Women. So let’s get to work developing and implementing approaches that can prevent and address sexual harassment. To learn about promising approaches and innovative ideas or to share ideas about how to prevent and address sexual harassment, join us for the Second Annual Summit hosted by the National Academies’ Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education.

This Summit aims to identify and elevate promising practices for preventing sexual harassment in higher education. Through a combination of plenary sessions, panel discussions, and concurrent sessions, this day-and-a-half event will serve as an opportunity for members of the Action Collaborative and the broader higher education community to gather information, engage in a dialogue, and gain diverse perspectives on how to effectively prevent sexual harassment.
