Harassment and Discrimination

Case 1


Susan, a fourth year medical student was attending a national medical organization meeting presenting a paper from her summer project. During the lunch break, she sat beside Dr. Heart a well known researcher at her school. Following a light conversion, Susan felt Dr. Heart was too friendly and was pressing his leg to her leg to get her attention. Dr. Heart was insisting to get her Email so he can send more materials to her helpful for her research. Few days later, Susan was receiving Emails from him wanting her to join him to a new out of the country conference. She felt uncomfortable and was not sure how best to respond as she was worried this will impact her chance to apply for a new project at her school. 



Is this harassment? If yes, why? If no, why?
