Seminar series on equal opportunities: Part 4

This time, we have the pleasure to present Dr. Anneli Häyrén, researcher at Gävle university and Stockholm university. She has, during the past 20 years, been working with and studied sexual- and gender harassment in academic environments. In her doctoral thesis, she focused on definitions of harassment, both theory- and experience driven and in relation to the Swedish law. During this seminar, Häyrén will present the most significant results of the thesis placed in a contemporary day-to-day context. Are there any changes since early 2000? Do we still have victims of harassment at UU and what is the difference between sexual and gender harassment? 

Please note that this seminar is targeting senior faculty. PhD students are instead invited to a workshop on May 19th.

The indico page for the event can be found here:

and the registration will be open until the noon of May 20th. Since this concerns our work environment, participation of senior personnel is strongly recommended by the IFA board.

Welcome!

Karin Schönning and Petra Jönsson on behalf of the Equal Opportunities group
