What exactly is SEXUAL HARASSMENT?

When TIME magazine unveiled the ME TOO “silence breakers” as its 2017 Person of the Year, it was clear that sexual harassment will never be swept under the rug again.  Its prevalence and extent of abuse by powerful Hollywood and media moguls appalled us all.  Yet, some women and men are confused by what exactly is considered harassment of a sexual nature.

Join ELEVATE on Thursday, February 1st when our expert panelists peel-back this topic and answer questions such as:

  • What exactly is harassment? Does it include being flirtatious? What about giving compliments?
  • Are there multiple forms of harassment?…
  • Who do you go if you’ve experienced harassment?…
  • Is there a “spectrum” of appropriate and inappropriate behavior?
  • What is the person harassing you is the boss? What do you do then?
  • How is the METOO Movement impacting how women react?
