In 2020, NCPH and AASLH launched an online survey about sexual harassment and gender discrimination in public history. The effort was the culmination of more than a year of work by members of NCPH’s board-led Subcommittee on Gender Discrimination and Sexual Harassment (GDSH). NCPH and AASLH contracted with Oberg Research to issue a 2022 report to the public history field about how gender discrimination and sexual harassment take place, who is most vulnerable, and whether current workplace and professional association policies are failing our efforts at diversity, equity, and inclusion. On April 19, we will walk through this inaugural report and turn to discuss its significance and how we should respond. Note: A copy of the Oberg Research report analyzing the survey data will be made available prior to April 19.
