Sexual harassment types of behavior
in the Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań (AMU) community
Ladies and Gentlemen,
AMU employees, Ph.D. students, B.A. and M.A. students,
We would like to encourage you to take part in the AMU community questionnaire on behavior defined as sexual harassment. Our questionnaire will be available between December 13th, 2021 and January 31st, 2022.
Sexual harassment has been defined as any undesirable sexual type of behavior towards a natural person or relating to gender, whose goal or effect is the infringement of the target person’s or gender’s dignity, in particular by creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or derogatory atmosphere. Such situations may take the form of physical, verbal or non-verbal behavior.
Through our questionnaire we will be able to collect information on the scale of the phenomenon and, thanks to it, will be in the position to introduce measures aimed at offering better support and assistance to individuals who have experienced sexual harassment. On top of it, data collected in the questionnaire will facilitate the development and the implementation of programs aimed at the eradication of such types of pathological behavior within the AMU community.
As the subject of the questionnaire belongs to most private and intimate areas of our lives, methods used in the questionnaire guarantee questionnaire participants complete anonymity and the data collected in the questionnaire shall be dealt with by a very small group of experts.
Taking into account the need for further reinforcement and empowerment of the social capital of the AMU community through partnership, openness and transparency, we are planning to create a general report on the results of the questionnaire. This report will be available to all members of the AMU community.
