Leadership in the Time of #MeToo
It seems that the news stories are almost endless: every week, there is a new report on sexual misconduct, often perpetrated by those in power positions.
The news stories have forced companies and individuals to take a hard look at their own values and culture.
You may not think sexual harassment is an issue in your organization – a full 94% of CEO's in corporate Canada don’t think so. But the imbalance of power has shifted, and organizations need to ready themselves for the changes ahead.
Join HRPA, Leanne Nicolle, former Executive Director of the Canadian Olympic Foundation, and Irit Kelman, Senior Investigator at Rubin Thomlinson, at this executive-only event, on how to deal with the new
#MeToo reality based on first-hand experience.
