Dr. Sherry Marts is founder and CEO of S*Marts Consulting, a Washington, DC-based consultancy specializing in anti-harassment trainings. Unlike typical anti-harassment trainings, which tell people (most of whom will never harass or bully anyone) what they shouldn’t do, her trainings focus on what individuals can do to stop and prevent harassment and bullying whether they are the target or a witness to the behavior. Dr. Marts has facilitated workshops for AGU, conducted AGU-sponsored anti-harassment workshops, and provides training for meeting safety programs, including for SafeAGU and the Geological Society of America’s RISE program.
