Dear fellow researchers and friends,
We invite all of you to participate in a survey that aims to capture
the workplace environment in conservation/environment academic circles in
Workplace harassment and wellbeing are indeed two ends of the spectrum – a
spectrum that encapsulates how our everyday workplace affects our state of
mental and physical wellbeing. Surveys in other countries have shown that

We wish to circulate this survey among a wider audience; we believe that we
require more data about this issue from an Indian perspective. We hope that

Institutions aware of the scale of the issue, and finally we hope that we
can use these results and inputs to put in place effective redressal
systems to address workplace harassment.
Please spread the word. Please also write in to us about any successful
redressal mechanisms you have encountered, it will help us collate
resources on the issue which can translate into action.
Thank you for your time and effort.
