Policies against sexual harassment have been in place for many years. Congress continues to push agencies to do more to prevent sexual harassment in extramural research settings. A public calling for a new rule for government agencies that award research grants could influence change in culture.
Join Kristen M. Schwendinger, a senior counsel at Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP, to hear her:
- Provide an update about the NSF, NIH, and NASA requirements incorporated into the terms of research grants
- Review the current regulatory requirements, and new mechanisms for complainants to report outside their own institution
- Discuss each policy’s potential impact, and the extent of their implementation
- Discuss how requirements in research grants related to discrimination could be used to leverage change in behavior
- Reflect on the differences between University action versus action by federal agency
- We will have Q&A after the presentation that will be open to consideration of the question posed by the presentation and any related topic.
