The Episode 1 - Power abuse in academia:

Guest: Prof. Dr. med. Sabine Oertelt-Prigione, professor of sex and gender sensitive medicine at the Radboud University in Nijmegen (Netherlands) and at the University of Bielefeld (Germany)

In this episode of Doing Science Differently, we will dive into the complex topic of power abuse and sexual harassment in Academia.

Today, there is an increasing amount of evidence that workplace bullying and harassment are more widespread and systemic than usually officially acknowledged or discussed. This very often leads to poor mental health and lower work motivation.

Fortunately, ‘taboo topics’ such as the abuse of power are being more and more called out and actively tackled. In the first episode of our podcast, you will also learn more about initiatives which are put in place to address these issues in Berlin-based research institutions and get to know Sabine, our guest and inspiring activist behind these reforms.
