Some really excellent commentary in the past few weeks on the web…
A thoughtful post by Melanie over at Beyond Managing on how keeping organized takes time, especially in the planning phase.
I’m sometimes asked by colleagues at conferences if biology really has a sexual harassment problem. It’s often a struggle to answer this question without making myself seem vulnerable or strident. In the future, I might just send these people the very personal post by Dr. Rebecca Rogers Ackermann on the sexual harassment problem that science has. The post is fantastic and really resonated with me and with other women in science.
The second post describes the strategy that many of us have to employ in order to get anything done in our research lives. We bury the sexual harassment experiences in order to move forward.
