Survey Invitation: Gender and Contra-Power Harassment in Canadian Post-Secondary Education

This survey is intended to gather information about the experiences of woman-identified faculty with contra-power harassment, and the impact it has/continues to have.

Contra-power harassment refers to the harassment (intimidation, bullying, threats, sexual harassment) that takes place in situations where the perpetrator has less institutional power than the victim. For instance, between students (perpetrator) and faculty member (victim).

The survey will take approximately 25 to 30 minutes to complete.

You are being asked to participate in this survey because you are currently, or have previously taught at a Canadian post-secondary institution. Woman-identified faculty teaching in any discipline are invited to participate. The lack of available research on contra-power at Canadian universities is significant, and your willingness to share your experiences will help to fill this gap in knowledge.
