Have you ever experienced unwanted sexual attention face-to-face at work and/or on e-mail, chat, social media, or other online media from a current or previous coworker? If so, you may be able to participate in a research study.

Dr. Jennifer Scarduzio, an associate professor at the University of Kentucky, and Dr. Shawna Malvini Redden, an associate  professor at Sacramento State University are conducting a study on the experiences of individuals who have received unwanted sexual attention from someone they work with or used to work with face-to-face and/or on a social networking site.

You must have been working for 30 hours or more per week at the time of the unwanted sexual attention. If you are eligible, you will be asked to participate in a 45-75 minute audio-recorded phone interview. To compensate you for your time, you will receive a $35 gift card.

Your participation in this study is voluntary, and you will be able to discontinue participation at any time. All interview responses will be kept confidential and pseudonyms will be used in any presented or published research reports. This study has been approved by the University of Kentucky Institutional Review Board (IRB). You can schedule a phone interview with Dr. Jennifer Scarduzio by emailing [email protected] or Dr. Shawna Malvini Redden by emailing [email protected] All interviews will take place on the phone
