What Lies Beneath: Recognizing & Responding to Identity Harassment in Academic Medicine

Friday, April 16, 2021
1:00 - 2:00 pm (1-hour D&I credit*)

Registration required
Open to all men & women, trainees, faculty & staff

Harassment is a complex phenomenon that is most often motivated by intentions to put people down and push people out of the workplace (Cortina & Areguin, 2021) rather than sexual interests. In this seminar, we will consider the common “myth-understandings” about gender/sexual identity harassment—what it is, what it is not—and harassment’s relationship with workplace incivility. Topics covered will include: contemporary research on identity harassment and incivility, examples of these phenomena in academic medical settings, and strategies (individual and institutional) for addressing these workplace challenges. Attendees will learn to recognize some common forms of gender/sexual harassment that “lie beneath” the surface in workplace settings and possible strategies for responding when they happen. The 45min virtual presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. Note: This event is presented as a “Zoom Meeting” and not a webinar. Attendees are encouraged to share their cameras during Q&A.

Presented by: Stephanie A. Goodwin, Ph.D., President of Incluxion Works; Research Faculty, Department of Psychology Wright State University; Visiting Associate Professor, Psychology, Stevens Institute of Technology, Former Program Director for NSF multi-institutional ADVANCE program
