Meeting Notes 3/11/16: UC Sexual Harassment Policy

At this meeting, Rachel H. presented a powerpoint highlighting the role of sexual harassment in the sciences, detailed the UC’s new sexual harassment policy, and the potential problems with it.  Her slides can be found here. Everyone in attendance agreed that there were many issues with the new sexual harassment policy and that we, as a group, should try to do something about it.  The first step we are taking is to compose a letter outlining our concerns with the new policy.  Then we will try to get the Physics department and possibly other organizations to sign the letter in support of changing the new policy. Further notes on what was discussed with respect to the content of the Rachel’s slides can be found here.
