Groups Unite to Fight Sexual Harassment

The groups have formed the Societies Consortium on Sexual Harassment

Recognizing that professional societies are standard setters for their industries and have a responsibility for combating sexual and gender harassment, 53 organizations have formed the Societies Consortium on Sexual Harassment in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine).

Announced earlier this month at the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) annual meeting, the new consortium is designed to pool the resources of the STEMM-affiliated groups so it can do work that its members need, particularly work that smaller organizations couldn’t afford to do independently.

“It is time effective and cost effective to do it together,” said Shirley Malcom, senior advisor and director of SEA Change at AAAS. “We need tools, and we need to have the intellectual, policy, and legal work done so we know we have good choices and models we can draw from.”
