National Academies of Science

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine are conducting a study of the impacts of gender-related experiences on women in science, engineering, and medical fields, and they have contracted with RTI International to gather information for the study. RTI International plans to conduct one-hour, in-depth telephone interviews with approximately 40 women faculty members in science, engineering, and medical fields at research institutions who have been personally impacted by any of the following behaviors in a professional setting within the past 5 years:

  • Someone making repeated, unwanted sexual advances to you
  • Someone using pressure or manipulation to get you to agree to sexual contact
  • Inappropriate or sexual remarks, sexual-oriented jokes, or comments about cognitive or intellectual sex differences

If you meet these criteria and are interested in being considered for the study, please complete a brief screening form here:
