Workplace and academic sexual harassment are once again in the public spotlight.  But there are differences in the way people are coming forth with complaints than they did in 1991 when Professor Anita Hill testified at the Senate Confirmation Hearing of Judge Thomas.  What have we learned from Professor Hill’s testimony and the Tailhook incident that created a cultural change we are witnessing now with allegations against Harvey Weinstein and others?  This webinar will address this issue and others, including:  racialized sexual harassment, incidence vs. reporting, proper investigative techniques, confidentiality, fear of reporting, impact of sexual harassment on individuals and workplaces, ways to inform individuals through courses, training programs and policies, and psychological profiles of individuals who engage in sexual harassment.
