#metoo: Navigating Sexual Harassment, Power Differentials, and Gender Inequity in Academic Medicine

LK320, Dean's Suite Boardroom


The Office of Faculty Development & Diversity welcomes Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPhil., Professor and Deputy Chair, Department of Radiation Oncology and Director of the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine at the University of Michigan.

This 90-minute talk and discussion will provide information on the historical evolution of women’s participation in the medical profession and evidence suggesting dysfunction in the pipeline to leadership in academic medicine.  Dr. Jagsi will review research that she and others have led to investigate the nature and causes of gender inequities, including unconscious biases, gendered expectations of society, and overt discrimination and harassment.  She will describe behavioral science and legal definitions of sexual harassment, share insights from decades of research in occupational psychology, and lead a discussion of targeted interventions to combat harassment and promote gender equity.

This event is open to all constituencies in the School of Medicine.
