Join us in conversation with Jerika Loren Heinze about a wide range of ‘Welfare in Fieldwork’-related topics. Jerika is the founder of the Fieldwork Initiative, an organization that addresses sexual harassment in research fieldwork worldwide. She created the ‘Fieldwork Initiative to Stop Sexualized Trauma’ (FISST) training, which is delivered to universities, organizations, and government agencies to ensure that students and researchers are supported in prioritising their safety in their research fieldwork.
Jerika is a PhD student in cultural anthropology and her research has taken her across the globe. She is also an advocate for former foster youth in higher education.
