Confronting Sexual Harassment
As a network of more than 350 women leaders who use our power to help each other and advance the community, we feel it is our duty to strengthen the national and local conversation on sexual harassment by adding our voices.
In early 2018, we partnered with TEMPO Milwaukee and distributed to our membership the survey they created on sexual harassment. 32% of members participated and we learned that the majority of respondents have experienced or witnessed sexual harassment at work.
So, how can we change this? What do we do next?
Professional Dimensions is holding a three-part program series focused on this issue to listen for the answer. At each session, we will take a look at the issue from new angles. This will include personal storytelling, a historical recap on the advancement of women, small group analysis of real situations, and empowering resources to spur individual action.
These programs are open to the public and we encourage members to bring guests and help expand this conversation outside of our organization.
We hope you'll join us.
We will continue to populate this resource list throughout the series. Please check back for updates.
