A technical mishap between SULF and Folksam has resulted in a number of members being wrongly informed that their membership in SULF has ended and thus the insurance has ended. It is only those who themselves ended their SULF membership where this applies. More information here.

UU: Hybrid seminar about Gender-based violence and sexual harassment

SULF/Uppsala and Saco-S at Uppsala University invites you to a seminar on the first-ever national survey on gender-based violence and sexual harassment in Swedish higher education.

The results of this survey, published in May 2022, reveal an alarming picture of the work environment at Swedish universities, with:

  • four percent of respondents reporting sexual harassment,
  • seven percent bullying and
  • approximately 50 percent incivility in the workplace during the previous year.

At Uppsala University, 21 percent of female doctoral students reported being targeted by harassment.

The survey results have been published here:

The seminar is designed to inform union members about the survey and to give perspectives from the union on the results.

A presentation by the researchers who led the study, Christina Björklund and Karin Dahlman-Wright from the Karolinska Institute, will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives from Saco-S and SULF. The presentation will be held in English, but the discussion afterwards will be flexible, with both English and Swedish used as needed.

When: Friday, May 17 at 13:00-16:00

Language: English
