“It’s the Culture, Stupid”: Transforming Today’s Sex Scandals into Tomorrow’s Strides for Women at Work

It’s 2018, but the sexual harassment scandals and #MeToo movement that closed out 2017 are sure to shape the year – and years – ahead. From Hollywood Boulevard to Main Street, USA, no industry has been spared. But for all the turmoil that business leaders are either witnessing or enduring, they may have an opportunity to seize this moment and establish a dramatically new normal.

In this podcast, Littler Principal Cindy-Ann Thomas and Jane Miller, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of The Gallup Organization, offer in-depth discussion and analysis of the answers to these questions and more:

  • The link between sexual harassment and the presence of women in leadership positions
  • Shifting mindsets about how organizations evaluate “financial interests” and the benefits of being gender-diverse
  • How organizations should guard against any backlash associated with the #MeToo movement, and
  • Whether new “rules” will need to be carved out for how men and women interact in the workplace.
