Harassment! A Power Play

Harassment! A Power Play

     Decades-old behaviors, rightfully requiring change, are being exposed and discussed, nationally and locally. 

     Recent accusations and revelations regarding politicians, movie moguls, sports figures, business magnates, law enforcement personnel, firefighters, educational and other professionals (and the list is growing!) demonstrate just how pervasive these behaviors are. Regardless of gender. Regardless of venue. Regardless of type. Regardless of industry or profession.

     How can we successfully separate fact from fabrication, assure fairness and justice are served, and provide comfortable, productive, and desirable workplaces, where we treat each other with respect and dignity?

     You won’t want to miss this experienced, insightful, no-holds-barred panel’s discussion, as they flesh out the risks, responsibilities, and dangers facing all of us.
