ACS Leads the Charge to Address Sexual Harassment

To combat sexual and gender-based harassment and advance professional and ethical conduct, the American Chemical Society (ACS) joined forces with more than 50 other organizations to form the Societies Consortium on Sexual Harassment in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine). “As awareness grows of the pervasiveness of sexual harassment in academia, industry and other realms of science, ACS has taken steps to increase transparency and reform its policies surrounding this issue,” notes the press release, including creating a conduct policy for ACS meetings and covering sexual harassment in its Chemical & Engineering News magazine.

“Last year’s report by the National Academies entitled ‘Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’ articulated the breadth and depth of the problem impacting all STEMM disciplines,” says Mary Kirchhoff, ACS’s EVP for scientific advancement. “The American Chemical Society is pleased to participate as a member of the executive committee in advancing the work of the Societies Consortium.”
