Ethics, Response to Harassment, and Work-Climate Related Events

AGU, along with partners from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Chemical Society, Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN), Association for Women Geoscientists (AWG), and American Geosciences Institute, hosted a sexual harassment workshop earlier this year to speak out against and discuss solutions to sexual and gender-based harassment in the sciences. AGU is continuing to further these efforts with a number of sessions at its 2016 Fall Meeting and an online Thunderclap campaign. There will be increased signage around the issue at Fall Meeting and AGU staff who are wearing “Safe AGU” buttons are trained to assist you if you need to report a harassment or other safety/security issue. Please see below for a list of the 2016 Fall Meeting events.
