Join Cheryl as she discusses the #MeToo Movement and the impact on Businesses: Since late 2017, the entertainment industry has been deluged with sexual harassment allegations against some of its biggest names. The public has witnessed powerful men in the entertainment industry being taken down by these allegations. Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Bill O’Reilly, and others have watched their careers vanish when someone finally listened to the women they had been victimizing for years. The resulting #MeToo and #TimesUp movements demonstrate that women are no longer willing to tolerate or ignore sexual harassment. Only time will tell the impact this will have on companies in other industries.
Businesses throughout the country felt the impact of these events with a 71% increase in charges filed with the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). Learn how to recognize harassment in the workplace and how best to implement changes to your office culture.
