Courageous Presence: Building Your Career and Your Brand with Conscious Action
Have you ever noticed that there are some in the organization who are "known” for their expertise? Looked to for the tough assignments or discussed for the promotions? How is it that they were able to build that brand for themselves seemingly without ever having to lift a finger? Well, it's not as easy as it appears.
In this provocative, funny and challenging program, Cindy Solomon will share her take on why some of us get ahead... and some of us are held up by barriers we may even create ourselves.
For the 5 things to do if you think you are being Sexually Harassed at work check out these links:
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII applies to employers with 15 or more employees. Sexual harassment can be unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment. These acts can also rise to the level of sexual harassment when they unreasonably interfere with an individual's work performance or create a hostile or offensive work environment. This page will discuss the topic of sexual harassment and the relevant laws in greater detail.
You're not alone if you are confused about workplace sexual harassment. You may suspect you're being sexually harassed but aren't sure what to do. Or maybe you're being harassed because of your gender and don't realize what you're experiencing is illegal sexual harassment.
