Senior Director, Harassment Prevention
The recent wave of #MeToo-inspired legislation in New York, California, and beyond--as well as pressures from Boards of Directors, shareholders, and employees--are compelling organizations to reimagine their harassment prevention efforts. During this session, the speaker will discuss new anti-harassment legal mandates and organizational risk factors that are prompting CHROs to move beyond traditional “check-the-box” anti-harassment practices toward innovative prevention approaches that help stop harassment before it starts. The session will also highlight evidence-based approaches, such as leveraging workplace norms and bystander intervention techniques, which enable organizations to go beyond legal compliance to transform workplace behavior. Participants will gain:
- Knowledge of recently-enacted legislative mandates regarding harassment in the workplace
- Understanding of the organizational risk factors of harassment and research-based strategies that can help stop harassment
- Actionable insights for building and implementing a comprehensive, organization-wide harassment prevention initiative.
