The Events Industry Sexual Harassment Task Force Announces First Webinar
9/6/2018
The Events Industry Sexual Harassment Task Force announces its first webinar. The webinar will be hosted on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 11 a.m. EST / 3 p.m. GMT. It is free, open to the public and attendance within the events industry is encouraged. The webinar is sponsored by AWE​, ​IMEX​, ​MPI​ and ​SITE​ and content support is provided by MPI. Titled: Understanding and Eliminating Workplace Harassment, Martin C. Lowery of ​OpusVertex International, LLC​ will host.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, addressing workplace harassment has never been more important or more timely. The webinar will define workplace harassment with an interactive session, reviewing different types of sexual harassment and giving participants a chance to make judgment calls on a variety of scenarios and mini case studies. The webinar will also cover strategies for curating events and work environments to mitigate issues of harassment in the workplace.

Participants may join the webinar ​here​.

Follow the conversation on social media using hashtag #MeetingsToo. For more information on the Events Industry Sexual Harassment Task Force, visit any of the participating organization’s websites.


About the Events Industry Sexual Harassment Task Force
In May of 2018, several industry leaders joined forces to combat sexual harassment and form the Events Industry Sexual Harassment Task Force. The task force, comprised of leaders and executives from ​ASAE​, ​AWE​, ​EIC​, ​IMEX​, ​JMIC​, ​MPI​, ​PCMA​ and ​SITE​, was formed to gather everyone behind a common goal: eradicate sexual harassment in the events industry. In the wake of movements like Times Up and Me Too, every industry must take action to create positive change and end sexual harassment, once and for all. The task force will identify tools and develop new resources to assist in educating individuals and the events industry about sexual harassment. More details on the task force and its participants can be found at ​www.womeninevents.org/files/awe_sexualharassment_pressreleaseupdatedsept2018.pdf​.
