OVERVIEW

Every day we are learning about more harassing, bullying and discrimination in the workplace on the part of men (mostly men — some women) who have been in positions of power over their (mostly) female victims. Women all over the country — indeed all over the world are yelling “#Metoo” and “Not Anymore”.

This dynamic #MeToo Movement has opened the door for many other women and girls to come forward to share their stories of abuse. Among the ugliest of them (in my opinion) is the young gymnasts – some not even teenagers – abused by their team physician. No more will vulnerable girls, boys and women passively accept demands for sexual favors.

That’s the plus side. The flip side is that any untoward behavior can be interpreted as harassment and abuse behavior. Professional careers can be lost due to these accusations. We need context. We need perspective. Complaints of tacky and inappropriate words should not rise to the level of demands for sexual favors, or actual sexual harassment. We need to look at the context. For example, in the sixties and seventies in many parts of the country, there was a tremendous push for sexual freedom. Some people believed that now that the birth control pill was available anything could go. Much of the accusations today come from behaviors that although inappropriate now were considered OK then.

We need to separate mildly offensive behavior from criminal behavior. We also need to be careful that we do not participate in a witch hunt, finding harassment, discrimination, and abuse everywhere.

This webinar is designed to go beyond the basic training to prevent harassment. It will talk about some touchy and probably not exactly politically correct ideas in a desire to provide a full understanding of what is happening today and what can be — and should be — prevented in the future.
