#MeToo and #TimesUp have been circulating around social media and news outlets in the last few years in response to the outpouring of sexual harassment allegations and complaints that have been recently exposed. Cases of highly powerful men like movie producer Harvey Weinstein and Fox CEO Roger Ailes being exposed for sexually harassing their subordinates. This attention brought forth a change in a nation in pursuing a workplace that is not only safe but equally represented between men and women. Sexual harassment is preventable, and steps should be in place to ensure that.
Did you know that many states now require employers to provide all employees with mandatory sexual harassment prevention training? While there are currently eight states (California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, New York and North Carolina) requiring this training it will only be a matter of time before additional states will require this training as well.
