How to prevent #MeToo in the workplace
It thrived on the silence of women, who were afraid to confront their perpetrators. And the women's trepidation to address the problem only enabled the offenders, granting them impunity.
Until last fall when more than 80 women shattered the silence by accusing movie producer Harvey Weinstein of alleged sexual harassment and assault. By stepping out of their fear to share their stories, those women provided the courage for other women to come forward, voicing allegations of unwarranted sexual advances by prominent men including journalists, politicians, professional athletes, celebrities and CEOs.
Once the floodgates broke, people from all backgrounds, occupations and ages turned to social media to share their #MeToo stories of unwanted sexual advancements in the workplace from factories to classrooms and corporate offices to government chambers.
Understanding a safe workplace is essential to the success of every business, Strategic Economic Development Corporation or SEDCOR is hosting "How to prevent #MeToo in the workplace" at noon Wednesday, March 14 at the Broadway Commons in Salem.
Guest speakers and attorneys David Briggs of Saalfeld Griggs PC and Luke Reese of Garrett Hemann Robertson PC will share what businesses can do to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace, what signs to look for and how to respond to allegations.
Reese and Briggs will be joined by Suzi Alligood, a third-party human resources professional from Xenium, a member of the Stoller family of businesses.  A vice president of people development and culture, Alligood assists employers manage the many sensitive issues triggered by a harassment report, both navigating legal risk and working to bring the entire work force together as they addresses and ultimately learn from these experiences.
