SPE's Involvement in the Societies Consortium on Sexual Harassment Led to Focusing on DEI Issues

As a founding member of the Societies Consortium on Sexual Harassment, SPE has collaborated on creating tools, guidelines and business practices to remove the barriers to inclusion which caused many women (and some others) to leave the field.

“Professional Societies have sometimes been described as ‘good old boys’ clubs,” said Farrey. “SPE, along with other STEM-related Societies wanted to address some systemic behaviors which made women in these organizations sometimes feel excluded or uncomfortable. SPE is striving to create an environment in which everyone feels respected and valued, and has equal opportunities to develop, advance, and be heard.”
