Given the heightened awareness and focus on the important topic of sexual harassment, we would like to call your attention to a powerful and informative article that appeared in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), a weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society. The article considers how sexual harassment has affected students and faculty and what universities are doing about it. The article, “Confronting sexual harassment in chemistry,” can be found at this link.
Stanford and its Chemistry Department take allegations of sexual harassment seriously. Stanford has a protocol for investigation and has taken action against perpetrators.
The Department of Chemistry has developed an informational flyer on sexual harassment that is available to download here.
