Gender Issues in the Workplace: When “good people” harass. Why they do it and why we let them.
Dr. Peggy Stockdale is the director of the Women in Work (WoW) Laboratory at IUPUI. Dr. Stockdale along with her team of researchers conduct and disseminate research on gender issues in the workplace. The main goal is to address and eliminate sexism in how women and men are treated in the workplace, schools, and other places. People have a right to be treated with dignity and respect. One of the research projects in the WoW Lab seeks to explain why “good people” are prone to sexual harassment, and why society tends to let these offenders off the hook.
-Why do we morally license ourselves and others to sexually harass?
Using research to make a positive impact in the world, Dr. Stockdale has helped numerous organizations develop or improve their policies on sexual harassment, eliminate the conditions that allow harassment to occur, and create effective procedures to address sexual harassment investigations.
Dr. Stockdale’s translation of research into understanding the causes of sexual harassment and other forms of sexism/discrimination in order to build effective tools and processes to address and eliminate the issues is another excellent example of how IUPUI’s faculty members are TRANSLATING their RESEARCH INTO PRACTICE.
