I’ve had a reader query about toxic climate that I wanted to pass on. There are a lot of quite horrendous problems in her department. There are also actions being taken to do something about them– a climate survey being analyses, concerned senior faculty speaking up, speakers on climate issues being booked in. But all of these things will take time to have an effect. Is there anything that can be done to help those who are suffering in the short-term? I have suggested getting those who are trying to fix things together to provide support for each other. Perhaps also holding some women-only social gatherings. What else?
