Second Annual National Public Summit of the Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education
October 19, 2020 – October 20, 2020
The Public Summit of the National Academies’ Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education is an open forum for those in the higher education ecosystem to collaboratively identify, discuss, and elevate innovative and effective approaches for addressing and preventing sexual harassment. This annual event brings together a diverse group, including members of the Action Collaborative, the broader higher education community, sexual violence and harassment researchers, sexual harassment response practitioners, grassroots and nonprofit organizations, public and private foundations, and federal and state policy makers. Building on the discussion at last year’s Summit, the 2020 Summit will be hosted virtually by the University of Wisconsin System and will serve as an opportunity to gather evidence-based information, engage in a dialogue, and gain diverse perspectives on how to effectively combat sexual harassment. This day-and-a-half event will feature a combination of panel discussions, expert presentations, and a poster session through which attendees can share research and novel ideas and practices currently being explored or implemented.
Please note that due to the evolving situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Summit will be an entirely virtual event to ensure the safety and health of attendees and the campus community.
