    "Creating a Culture that Promotes Respect Instead of Harassment"


    The past twelve months have brought a new awareness of harassment in the workplace. The #METOO movement has shown that sexual harassment can still be prevalent in organizations, even those who have an HR department and the right policies. What else should HR have done? What else can we do now and in the future? This session discusses how we can empower our employees to speak up even when they are not the victim. And even though the media's lens is currently on sexual harassment, HR should not lose sight of potential issues regarding other protected classes. Are we unwittingly creating an "exclusive" workplace instead of an inclusive one with regards to political or religious bias? What can we do to promote the "business case" for ALL kinds of diversity with our C-Suite?
