All scientific societies are working to ensure that their scientific and technical conferences are a safe place to learn, share, and network in a safe environment. With harassment issues front and center in the news and on social media, it’s mandatory that scientific societies become empowered to improve their meetings environments for all involved.
During this timely and important webinar, you’ll hear how two societies have implemented new initiatives to educate and inform their members of the issues surrounding harassment, established codes of conduct and incident reporting structures, and processes to hold meeting participants accountable for their actions. You’ll come away armed with recommendations for making your meetings safer and for creating meetings that your members will want to attend.
