    In this presentation, Karin Bosman discusses humiliation, the assaults and the loneliness victims experience. How colleagues are too afraid to react and how this effects the victim and work environment. How fear and silence empowers offenders.             

    She provides advice on risk management, on reducing sexual workplace harassment by using a preventive approach. Companies that don’t train management on preventing sexual harassment are subject to lawsuits and other liabilities. By showing a corporate policy in court, doesn’t mean that they have done everything in their power to protect their employees from crimes like sexual harassment. A one-day training about sexual harassment and writing down rules of conduct really falls short to prevent a hostile environment.  


    Karin Bosman is an experienced expert of sexual workplace harassment and founder of About Workplace Harassment AWH, based in the Netherlands.
