The NIH should follow the National Science Foundation’s lead on stopping gender violence in science

first_imgA principal or co-principal investigator has any administrative action relating to any finding or determinationRequired to report to the agencyOnly if there is a status change in PI/co-PI Process• Complaint reviewed using four criteria• Consultation with organizational representative• Decision about awardNone Please enter a valid email address. TimelineMust be submitted within 10 business days of institutional or civil findingNone This stance complements Title IX Obama-era guidance, which required the investigation of off-site alleged sexual harassment or sexual violence regardless of whether the person harassed or assaulted had an affiliation with the offender’s institution, although there are hints that this guidance may be changed by the Trump administration. Leave this field empty if you’re human: Although an extensive review of the NIH rule-making process is beyond the scope of this article, the NIH does have emergency and temporary rule-making mechanisms that could be employed to address timely issues, such as the safety of scientists on NIH projects.What’s frustrating about the NIH’s lackadaisical approach to gender violence is that this topic has been on Collins’ agenda for at least two years. In 2016, he co-authored a letter to Nature indicating that the NIH was actively taking steps to address gender violence in science. Had he started working on this issue then, the NIH could have already proceeded with the lengthy rule-making process that he described recently.Scientists have had enough. BethAnn McLaughlin, Julie Libarkin, and Tisha Bohr started an online petition asking the NIH to stake a stand on gender violence. We agree that it needs to do this.Gender violence in the scientific workplace has harmed the careers, the livelihood, and the personhood of women scientists because of the misconduct of powerful and prominent NIH-funded scientists. It is time for the NIH, the world’s largest funder of science, to follow the leadership of the NSF and stop funding perpetrators of gender violence.Kelsey Priest is a fifth-year M.D./Ph.D. candidate at Oregon Health and Science University and the OHSU-Portland State University School of Public Health in Portland, Ore. Caroline King is a second year M.D./Ph.D. student at OHSU. Notifications of gender violence must be submitted to the NSF Office of Diversity and Inclusion within 10 business days of an action, whether it’s a finding or determination, or an administrative action or leave (whichever comes first).advertisement Differences between NSF and NIH in sexual harassment/gender violence policies(Note: Click here to download a PDF of this comparison table.) National Science FoundationNational Institutes of Health Related: [email protected] NIH headquarters in Bethesda, Md. Pablo Martinez Monsivais/AP @kelseycpriest First OpinionThe NIH should follow the National Science Foundation’s lead on stopping gender violence in science By Kelsey Priest and Caroline King Sept. 28, 2018 Reprints As part of the National Science Foundation’s effort to prevent gender violence in science, its director, France A. Córdova, recently announced new terms and conditions for reporting gender violence to the organization. It is the kind of clear and bold approach that the National Institutes of Health should be taking. Instead, the NIH is sticking with its weak “guidance” on anti-sexual harassment, shirking its responsibility and placing the burden for action on survivors, though it did launch a new website on the topic.The new NSF policy requires institutions to notify the foundation when a principal investigator or co-principal investigator is facing administrative action, administrative leave, a finding or determination of responsibility, or is under active investigation related to sexual harassment, other forms of harassment, or sexual assault. In striving for clarity, the NSF also defined those italicized terms (listed below).The new policy, which goes into effect Oct. 21, 2018, applies to individuals who receive funding from the NSF who have committed acts of gender violence in all environments, including their home institutions, online, at field sites or other facilities, and at conferences. Under the NSF policy, reportable actions include acts of gender-based harassment, unwelcome sexual attention, sexual coercion, or the creation of a hostile environment by principal or co-principal investigators.advertisement ‘It’s time for systemic change’: Scientific leaders urge new efforts to curb sexual harassment in the field Kelsey Priest Sexual harassment is rampant in science — and current policies aren’t cutting it, landmark report finds The NIH states that individuals “can” submit a complaint if they believe an NIH-funded project was “affected as a result of harassment, including sexual harassment.” Note, however, that the NIH provides no guidance on a process for investigating complaints, the potential consequences for principal or co-principal investigators, or protections against retaliation for those reporting such complaints. This is effectively a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy for sexual misconduct by our country’s leading body for science.Question number seven of the FAQ section of the NIH website asks if a principal or co-principal investigator would lose funding because of gender violence. The NIH sidesteps the issue by reciting a policy already in existence: that the NIH only requires notification if the “organization seeks to remove or change the status of senior/key personnel named on the notice of award” — a policy that is not specific to acts of gender violence by grant-funded scientists.The rationale for inaction by NIH is unclear and contradictory. Before the NSF made its announcement on gender violence, NIH Director Francis Collins had announced that his organization was not making any explicit changes to its gender violence policy because it “is a complex issue. NIH funding is awarded to institutions, not to individuals.” Yet this line of thinking contradicts other NIH policies that allow grantees to transfer their funding when they change institutions.After the NSF policy announcement, Collins released a statement stating that a policy change on gender violence could not occur immediately because “legal constraints that apply differently to NSF and NIH currently prevent NIH from immediate implementation of an identical policy. A rule-making process would be needed to determine if NIH can require the same responses from our awardee organizations.”When asked about the specifics of the rule-making process by reporter Jocelyn Kaiser at Science magazine, Collins explained that this process, involving the White House Office of Management and Budget, would take at least a year and that the NIH is “actively exploring” this option and that he plans to work with NSF’s Córdova to discuss rules for all research agencies. A principal or co-principal investigator is placed on administrative leaveRequired to report to the agencyOnly if there is a status change in PI/co-PI Once notified, the NSF says it will conduct a review with four considerations: 1) the safety and security of personnel supported by the NSF award; 2) the overall impact on the NSF-funded activity; 3) the continued advancement of the science and the other scientists involved in the project; and 4) whether the organization has taken appropriate action to ensure the continuity of science if the principal or co-principal investigator has been removed.During this process, the NSF will consult with representatives from the organization that employs the individual under investigation. From its review, the NSF will decide whether or not the principal or co-principal investigator should be substituted or removed from the award, if the funding amount should be reduced, or if the award should be suspended or terminated.In stark contrast, the NIH has done essentially nothing to address gender violence committed by NIH-funded scientists. As outlined in an online FAQ, the NIH encourages individuals who have experienced gender violence to contact “the appropriate authorities,” including law enforcement, the institution’s affirmative action and equal opportunity office, human resources office, or the federal Office of Civil Rights. These suggestions, especially encouraging survivors to report to law enforcement, indicate that NIH leadership has a limited understanding of reporting barriers for survivors.(A comparison of the policies of the two organizations is below.)

GM to build 30,000 ventilators for the U.S. federal stockpile

first_img The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever The U.S. awarded General Motors and partner Ventec Life Systems a US$489.4-million contract to make 30,000 ventilators by the end of August, finalizing a deal that was briefly under fire from President Donald Trump.Production will start next week, a GM spokesman said Wednesday, and the carmaker and Ventec will deliver a fifth of the breathing machines they’re building for the Health and Human Services Department by June 1.The U.S. invoked the Defense Production Act to secure production from the companies after Trump accused GM of moving too slowly and gouging the government. He’s praised the carmaker since then.

Both companies had been working around the clock to find a way to build ventilators in mid-March when Trump accused the carmaker of dragging its feet, calling out Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra by name.GM is now the first company with a U.S. contract to add to the national stockpile that the federal government maintains, which is expected to run short of medical equipment to dole out to states coping with the coronavirus pandemic.Before working with GM, Ventec was making at most 250 ventilators a month. To boost production rates into the thousands, Ventec needed GM’s help enlisting hundreds of parts suppliers to increase output, and the automaker is hiring 1,000 workers who will build the machines at the plant in Indiana.

CU-Boulder Law Scholars To Discuss High Court Rulings On Affirmative Action Cases

first_img Published: June 26, 2003 To better understand the impact of the June 23 decisions on affirmative action by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Byron R. White Center for the Study of American Constitutional Law at the CU-Boulder School of Law will hold a panel presentation on July 1. Titled “What Do the Michigan Affirmative Action Decisions Mean for Universities and Colleges? A Discussion by Constitutional Law Scholars,” the presentation will be held from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Lindsley Memorial Courtroom of the Fleming Law Building. The event is free and open to the public. The panel will feature CU law professors Emily Calhoun, Robert Nagel and Richard Collins. Nagel is the Rothgerber Professor of Constitutional Law and Collins is director of the Byron R. White Center. The high court upheld the University of Michigan’s use of race as one of several factors in the law school’s admissions policy. In making the decision, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor wrote “the diffusion of knowledge and opportunity through public institutions of higher education must be accessible to all individuals regardless of race or ethnicity.” But the court also ruled that the university’s use of a system that automatically awards undergraduate admission points to a prospective student based solely on race violates the 14th Amendment’s equal-protection guarantee and ignores “the importance of considering each applicant as an individual.” “The decisions give universities an opportunity to look closely at what they are doing,” said Calhoun. “In particular, the court was concerned about ensuring individualized determinations, and when an undergraduate program has tens of thousands of applicants, it might be interesting to look at the practical realities of providing such determinations.” But critics are claiming the battle over the use of race in college admissions is hardly over. In his dissenting opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia predicted the decision will foster more litigation. “There is no hard and fast rule against using race, so each affirmative action program will need to be evaluated on a case by case basis, potentially by the courts,” said Calhoun.

That builds on a 2016 goal of 98 per cent of the population having 3G coverage and 8 million citizens with mobile broadband access.According to GSMA Intelligence, 30 per cent of Egypt’s mobile connections are via 3G technology today, while the country is yet to launch LTE services.Helmy made it clear that cooperation between governments, operators, multinationals and NGOs will be essential if the country is to achieve its aims for a digital economy.

How it fights back, including on a regulatory front,  is crucial for its future prospects.In addition to giving up some of its spectrum stash, BT must improve access and the costs to use its fixed broadband network, the means for Vodafone to launch a rival service, argues Hoencamp (pictured).He said Vodafone’s previous attempt to launch fixed broadband was hampered by the terms under which it accessed BT’s infrastructure.Subsequently Vodafone acquired fixed operator Cable & Wireless two years ago but still needs BT for nationwide coverage. Its fixed broadband service is due to launch in the Spring.Interestingly, Vodafone also has a network-sharing agreement with O2 which is now in some doubt following the latter’s talks with Hutchison. Separately, EE and Hutchison’s Three UK have a network-sharing deal.Following the proposed takeovers, “Hutchison will have to make a decision whether to go with Vodafone or the other way,” points out Hoencamp. If Hutch does shift across onto the Vodafone/O2 infrastructure then three operators will be crowded onto one network, while EE will have a network to itself, which would not be good for competition, he said.However, Vodafone has said the network-sharing deal with O2 contains costly break clauses, with the implication that jumping the other way has implications for Hutchison too.
