Never Me for Managers


3 hour program

What Does Harvey Weinstein Have To Do With Me for Managers

In this era of heightened awareness around sexual harassment in the workplace, how do you ensureyour employees, vendors, and contractors are protected?

Make no mistake – whether you are in a private or public company --womenare talking.Women who have been asked for favors to make a deal, been treated inappropriately or subjected to “locker room talk” at work will damage your company’s brand and will litigate, holding not only the leadership team but individual managers accountable.

While women are talking, one of the most awkward conversations to have in a workplace environment is about sexual harassment. Despite wanting to participate in the conversation, both men and women in leadership roles are unsure of how to ask questions or demonstrate support without making a misstep or potentially causing offense. But we must talk about it, and more importantly help move from Me Too to Never Me because 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. As leaders, we can change the story!

Join us to learn and discuss this important hot topic. You will learn:

  • What are the early warning signs that a team culture is toxic to women or other minorities and includes acceptance of sexual harassment
  • How to ensure your sexual harassment policies are more than compliance measures
  • How to speak up respectfully
  • How to correct harassing behaviors
  • Accountability including; disclosure, investigation, remediation, and reflection
  • Proactive measures to prevent future misconduct

This is an interactive format, so please bring your experiences and questions and join in on the hearty discussion!
