We are living in an extraordinary time. Survivors of sexual violence are coming forward and some are finally being heard and believed.
And while a few powerful abusers are paying the price for their unlawful conduct, workplaces overall have been slow to respond to the structural, institutional, and cultural norms that underlie #metoo in the workplace.
But what if we could stop sexual assault and harassment in the workplace before it happens?
We can. Together.
Who created this guide?
Futures Without Violence, with support from the NoVo Foundation, W.K. Kellogg Foundation and Blue Shield of California Foundation, worked with advocates, workers, and survivors to lift up the stories, insights, and successes of workers who have been fighting for some time to end workplace sexual harassment and assault.
Who is this guide for?
YOU. So you can take meaningful steps to end sexual harassment and assault in the workplace.
This interactive guide will be regularly updated with new information and stories from the front lines. If you have a story to share, please send an email to Activist@futureswithoutviolence.org.
