Societies Consortium on Sexual Harassment in STEMM

Societies Consortium on Sexual Harassment in STEMM

The Societies Consortium on Sexual Harassment in STEMM is a unique collective act of leadership and accountability to advance excellence in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medical fields (STEMM).  This initiative is providing customizable model policies (with embedded menus of options for flexibility), policy-law guidance, and practical tools to advance professional and ethical conduct, climate and culture in societies’ own operations and STEMM fields broadly, in support of the inclusion of all talent and excellence in the fields. Through a collective effort and investment, the consortium model can develop high-quality resources that benefit from multiple perspectives and national expertise, in a time and cost-efficient manner.  Toward these aims, the Consortium’s strategic focus is building communities actively intolerant of sexual and intersecting bases of harassment and building bridges for collective efforts across STEMM—among societies, academic and research institutions, teaching hospitals and others, as well as researchers, faculty, and students.  Launched in December 2018, there are currently 100  Inaugural Members (with the inaugural period ending on April 1, 2019). Membership remains open, however, with Societies continuing to join or exploring to do so.
