Our 2022 Annual Meeting was held on October 22, with a speaker at 1:30. All were encouraged to attend:

Our speaker on October 22 was Casey Oliver.

Casey’s dissertation focuses on sexual violence that is perpetrated through technology against women. She seeks to better understand whether this type of gender-based violence effects both the mental well-being of women and their use of technology.

This could have grave implications for their academic and career participation, especially with the increasingly virtual nature of these settings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In-turn, this research could inform prevention and response strategies, including platform and government policies.
