Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K., Charlie Rose, Bill O’Reilly, Al Franken, former President George H.W. Bush, Kevin Spacey… who’s next? Someone in your organization?

The problem of sexual harassment isn’t limited to the entertainment industry or politics, it’s widespread. In fact, according to a new poll, almost half of America’s working women say they've experienced sexual, verbal or physical harassment at work.

Yet, according to an EEOC report 90% of workers who say they’ve experienced harassment never formally reported it.

Do you have a serial harasser in your office? More importantly, does your workplace culture encourage or quietly condone harassment?
