This surprised us 👉 Training does not reduce sexual harassment. We've been conducting widespread sexual harassment training in the U.S. for 15+ years now, and it has not seemed to reduce sexual harassment. #metooSTEM
Why? 1) Because of cynicism. 2) Because employees "sniff out" compliance-based trainings. 3) Because trainings change attitude but haven't been effective in changing behavior. Conclusion: We need to overhaul our approach to SH training going forward. #metooSTEM
Little-known info about retaliation: It happens before and after reporting... and if you don’t report at all! There is professional AND social retaliation... most of time it's social retaliation (excluding a colleague, calling them "problematic," etc). #MeTooSTEM #ScienceToo
.@KateClancy: I don't trust anyone including myself to be incapable of causing harm. We've all been perpetrators and we've all been harmed. We need to move the narrative away from focusing on the "bad apples." 🙌
Audible "mhm" from the audience when Ashley Finley of AAC&U said her colleagues are more comfortable talking about DIVERSITY than EQUITY. #MeTooSTEM #ScienceToo
"If you have a harassment problem, your staff probably isn't very diverse" - David Chambers of @NASA #MeTooSTEM #ScienceToo
Audience question (re: disclosing romantic relationships): "How do you define consensual?"

Lawrence Tabak of NIH: "When the intention is to marry."

Audience reaction:🤔🤔🤔 ?!

#MeTooSTEM #ScienceToo
Dr. Valantine of @NIH_COSWD: It's about REwards not AWards. This is so much less about the taking away of grants than it is about changing culture.

Audience member: The report doesn't highlight an emerging threat -- the problematic behavior has been present for a long time. There should be excitement around the report; we should treat it as the dawning of a new age, like a new technology or scientific discovery 👏 #MeTooSTEM
Learned about #restorativejustice in a special sesh:

🌱It can be a tool to help perpetrators understand the harm they've caused and change their behavior.
🌱It is not the same as mediation.
🌱It can address the "ripples of harm" caused to communities by SH.
