Financial researcher, Enrichetta Ravina, 40, alleges that her colleague, a tenured Columbia University business professor, sexually harassed her. Ravina is suing the university for $20 million for failing to stop the harassment.
Geert Bekaert, 51, the alleged harasser, was posing as Ravina’s mentor. Apparently Bakaert had other things on his mind besides academics.
Ravina claims when she complained to her superiors about the abuse she was experiencing, they did nothing to help her. Instead, they mocked her and accused her of instigating the attention. Though an internal investigation was launched in 2014, no violation was found.
