Power Abuse in Academia

Power Abuse in Academia

This webinar will take place on July 27th, 2021 at 1:00 - 2:00 pm.

In this webinar, hosted by the HMGU Career Center, Dr. Martha Oliveira from Dragonfly Mental Health will be talking about power abuse in academia. Power abuse is unfortunately commonplace in highly hierarchical work cultures, such as Academia. In this talk, you will learn about the difference between power abuse, harassment, and discrimination and discuss when an action becomes an abuse of power. Additionally, you'll hear about a student-led grassroots initiative leading culture change in a Helmholtz Center. Finally, we will discuss how you can take action and impact your surroundings.
