Sexual harassment and bullying in the workplace occur more frequently than one would think. For many lawyers who find themselves victims of sexual harassment and assault, it can be difficult to speak up or seek the necessary help, especially in the workplace. They suffer in silence out of fear that speaking up will cause too much damage to their careers or that their reports won’t be taken seriously.

Joining me to shed light on sexual harassment, bullying, and what law firms should be doing to end workplace harassment is Lauren Rikleen, Founder and President of the Rikleen Institute for Strategic Leadership. She is the author of the new book: The Shield of Silence: How Power Perpetuates a Culture of Harassment and Bullying in the Workplace.

Lauren speaks, trains, and consults on a variety of issues relating to workplace culture including women’s leadership and retention, unconscious bias, multi-generational teams, and negative workplace conduct including sexual harassment.
