HR and Sexual Harassment: #MeToo or "Not Us"

Sexual harassment cuts across all industries, as validated by the #MeToo movement, and institutions that take a "not us" attitude are setting themselves up for potential disaster. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, only 30 percent of employees who experience harassment ever complain internally, and even fewer are likely to file a charge. So, how can HR be expected to be effective at stemming this abuse? Don't fall into the "not us" trap of complacency. Join this interactive panel discussion to explore the challenges and contributing factors impacting HR. Leave with concrete strategies and resources designed to raise awareness and reduce sexual harassment at your institution.
