2021 Society for Neuroscience Conference Satellite Event
Sponsored by W.I.N.E.--Women In Neural Engineering

Forum on

Sexual Harassment, Coercion, & Assaults in the Neuroscience

(or any science) Workplace

November 11th, 2021: 5:30-6:30pm (CST or GMT-6)

Sexual harassment, coercion and assaults are common within the academic and clinical workplace but quite often go unreported (see Society for Neuroscience Conference abstract # 6539/ Poster # J013.01 "What women and minorities are afraid to speak up about").

Women In Neural Engineering (WINE) has organized this forum with experts in the field of sexual misconduct in the workplace to raise awareness of this pervasive problem and discuss steps that individuals and institutions can take to improve their work environment.

Anyone is welcome to join this zoom discussion with experts:
