Event Harassment Survey
Providing a professional and safe conference environment, plus raising awareness of harassing behaviors, are critical priorities to SPIE and OSA. Working together, we have surveyed our Members to learn if they have experienced or observed harassment or bullying as an attendee at our conferences and events that either Society organizes. The survey closed on 7 January 2019. We are now in the process of analyzing that data and will be sharing the results with our members and the community to help us all understand the magnitude of these problems and work as Societies and a community to develop solutions.
The Optical Society believes that every individual in the optics and photonics field is entitled to a work or research environment that is safe and inclusive. That’s why OSA develops programs and initiatives that support a more diverse profession.
