Confronting Sexual Harassment with the Bay Area Women in Publishing (BAWIP)

IBPA incoming board of directors member Kelly Peterson to moderate sexual harassment panel at BAWIP meeting

Kelly Peterson, incoming member of the IBPA board of director, to moderate BAWIP panel on sexual harassment.

At least 25% of women experience sexual harassment in the workplace, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). They also noted that 87-94% of harrassment claims go unreported, and when acted on, can cost companies millions. Whether you are an employer, employee, or a freelancer, this discussion organized by Bay Area Women in Publishing will inform you about how to protect yourself and your business. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!

Discussion Topics:

  • The agreed-upon legal definition of harassment in California and the U.S.
  • Resources and support that are available for victims
  • How to involve your Human Resources Department if you’ve been harassed, and the steps they are likely to take
  • How to protect yourself if your company is too small for its own HR Department
  • Best practices for any company to create a safe work environment
  • Why women don’t report abusers and how companies can make it easier

A reservation is required for this event, and admission is free. The Barrett-Koehler offices have a secured entrance, so you must have an invitation to attend. Drinks and light appetizers will be provided by Bay Area Women in Publishing.
