Sexual Misconduct In The Workplace Is A Failure of Leadership
Since the New Yorker exposed the longstanding sexual predation by Harvey Weinstein in October 2017, headlines of other sexual harassment cases proliferated, public response has been emotionally charged, with demands for far-reaching reforms. As I feel compelled by a moral and ethical obligation to take a stance on the issue of sexual misconduct in the workplace, I co-authored a white paper with two Partners at The River Group.
Being a leader is not just about leading the organization to new heights, it is also about leading the organization through difficult times. By sharing our thoughts, we invite you to a meaningful and constructive conversation about this topic. This paper contends that allowing sexual misconduct in the workplace is a failure of leadership. Why? Because leaders hold a moral obligation to do the right thing. Specifically, we covered the below topics:
What is sexual misconduct?
The cost of sexual misconduct
Sexual misconduct is a failure of leadership
What to do if there is sexual misconduct
How to create an environment without sexual misconduct
