AAMC Webinar – Creating Safe and Inclusive Environments for Faculty and Students in the Biomedical Setting

October 14, 2020 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Creating Safe and Inclusive Environments for Faculty and Students in the Biomedical Setting
Wednesday, October 14, 2020
2:00-3:00 p.m. ET


With the presence of #MeToo, Time’s Up Healthcare, and diversity and inclusion efforts broadly at member institutions, leaders in academic medicine are increasingly aware of the need to create safe and inclusive environments. Recent studies have highlighted the prevalence and profound impact of sexual and gender harassment. Institutional leaders are looking for best practices to create safe environments that go beyond simply legal compliance. This webinar will explore the more nuanced aspects of creating safe and inclusive environments including gender harassment, understanding the prevalence and impact of intimate partner violence (IPV), and strategies to promote inclusion in the scientific environment.
Learning Objectives
  1. Participants will be able to identify experiences and behaviors related to gender harassment, microaggressions and intimate partner violence through data from AAMC, NASEM and the ACS Intimate Partner Violence surveys.
  2. Participants will be able to understand the nuanced ways, beyond legal compliance, institutions can create safe and inclusive environments for a holistic approach to diversity and inclusion.
  3. Participants will be able to integrate gender harassment, IPV, and/or diversity and inclusion education into current programming or institutional culture and climate efforts such as leadership development
