From #Me Too to #Never Here, #Not Me
In this era of heightened awareness around sexual harassment in the workplace, and harassment in general, how can you increase protection and inclusive leadership where you work and most importantly develop the skills to stop inappropriate behavior? What strategies will you employ to develop allies who will support you and create a more inclusive work environment?
Make no mistake-- women are talking. Women who have been pressured for sexual favors to make a deal, get a position or grade, been treated inappropriately or subjected to “locker room talk” or worse at work may not have in the past held the leaders accountable, but are now spreading the word about their experiences on social media, and looking for ways to stop the abusers and change the power dynamics at work.
Women are sharing their stories, supporting each other in reducing the isolation, shame and self-recrimination as well as questioning their own any responsibility when they were in actuality victimized. While these conversations are therapeutic and long overdue for some, they must be coupled with a proactive approach to stopping sexual harassment if we want to move from Me Too to Never Here and Never Me. Data shows that roughly 71 percent of women still don’t report sexual harassment out of fear of retaliation, and even fewer bystanders report harassment that they've witnessed. And we have the power to change the story!
Join us to learn and discuss this important hot topic. You will learn:
- Why is this important
- Speaking up when bad behavior happens to you or another person
- Understanding what actions/options are open to you
- Documenting and reporting
- Early warning signs to address - toxic cultures where harassment happens
This is an interactive format, so please bring your experiences and questions and join in on the hearty discussion!
