Verbal and other exchanges in the workplace and education arenas are necessary but sometimes misinformed, misunderstood, misinterpreted, and/or inappropriate. This workshop will present several scenarios of actual events (with all names and locations removed), and ask workshop participants to discuss their interpretations of the events. The goals of the workshop are to 1) inform participants and workshop leaders of the possible wide variety of opinions about these events, 2) foster greater understanding of what harassment is and let participants ‘practice’ their personal responses, and 3) encourage future conversations and interventions, should participants witness similar events. This workshop is being jointly sponsored and offered by AGU, Association for Women Geoscientists (AWG), Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN), Society of Exploration Geophysicists Women’s Network Committee (SEG – WNC), American Association of Petroleum Geologists Professional Women in Earth Sciences (AAPG-PROWESS), University of Kansas, the Geology Associates Fund of the University of Kansas Endowment Association, and UCAR.
