Dismantling Sexual Harassment in Albany: Engaging Men in Culture Change

Dismantling Sexual Harassment in Albany: Engaging Men in Culture Change


Join us on September 30th for a virtual event to discuss best practices to engage men in creating culture change around sexual harassment.

From 5:00 PM until 6:00 PM

At Zoom

Presented by PowHer™ New York / info@powherny.org

With the first female governor in the history of New York State, we have the opportunity to make substantive change. But this can only happen with the participation of men who are willing to take on transforming culture and stand up as allies for women and victims of sexual harassment.

PowHer™ New York launched our series on sexual harassment with a panel discussion of the impact of sexual harassment especially on women and described past and pending legislation. The panelists agreed that legislation was important but not enough: fundamental systems change is required to dismantle the problem of sexual harassment in Albany.

Part Two of the series addresses this issue. Our male panelists will discuss best practices in creating culture change in the workplace and how to engage men and male leaders to take responsibility to prevent and address sexual harassment.

The ultimate goal of the series is to present recommendations to Governor Hochul and elected leadership so collectively they can address the urgent need to change the toxic culture in Albany to a safer and more positive and productive working environment for all.
