    How to prevent and resolve sexual harassment situations in the university and research setting
    Taught by the Delegation of the Rector for Mediation and Prevention and the Gender Equality Unit of the UAM
    Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM)

    At the university and research level, sexual harassment and due to sex they are mostly silenced, and some Studies encrypt its occurrence in percentages higher than 50% of the women surveyed. The consequences of these forms of harassment are serious, both individually and institutionally, and can expel many brilliant minds from the academic and research career. In this seminar we will discuss actions necessary to prevent and eradicate sexual harassment and for sex in our closest environment, raising the advantages and disadvantages of the different actions that we have carried out

    Looking from within, we want to think that the world of science and technology is an environment in which rationality and equity they come standard. Environments in which it is essential to work on solid and demonstrable foundations, avoiding prejudice and not submitting to dogmas are certainly privileged places on paper. But reality shows that, in terms of people who carry out their work in the world of science, it is not easy to avoid prejudices, when they affect sexual diversity or, as has been so clearly seen, in gender issues.

    In this seminar? we will take a tour of the reality that we are going learning about LGTBIQA + people and scientific environments, and How we have seen it necessary to bear in mind that the world of science needs to be equal and diverse, because that diversity is wealth that also facilitates better research.

    Gender inequality manifests itself in many different ways within the scientific field. At the round table we want to reflect on the possible measures that can be implemented by research centers to reduce this inequality. For this and with the aim of sharing good practices, we will learn about the measures that have been implemented in three research centers to promote gender equality and how they are working.
