Uber ouvre une «enquête urgente» après des accusations de harcèlement sexuel

 

Susan Fowler, une ingénieure ayant travaillé jusqu’à la fin d’année dernière pour le service de réservation de voiture avec chauffeur, a publié dimanche un article sur son blog personnel expliquant pourquoi elle est partie travailler ailleurs.

 

Elle raconte avoir reçu, au tout début de sa prise de fonctions fin 2015, des propositions sexuelles d’un supérieur, et l’avoir signalé au service des ressources humaines et à des responsables hiérarchiques. Selon elle, l’homme n’a pas été sanctionné au motif que c’était sa «première offense» et qu’il affichait «une performance élevée», tandis qu’elle s’est vue demander de choisir entre changer de service ou prendre le risque d’obtenir une mauvaise évaluation si elle conservait son poste actuel. plus

Young women face ‘pervasive’ culture of sex harassment in Canadian politics

The day after Ontario’s former opposition leader was accused by two young women of sexual misconduct, advocates for female leaders are lamenting how long it’s taken the #metoo movement to gain momentum in Canadian politics.

Bad economy breeding ‘ruthless’ workplace bullies

The economic climate is creating perfect conditions for workplace bullying to move into more ‘ruthless’ territory, according to an expert. Alberta-based workplace bullying expert Linda Crocket has said bullying is on the rise across the country, at the same time as the job market worsens. In an interview on Saskatoon Morning, Crocket said employees are currently worried about cutbacks and are beset by fear over losing their jobs. “It creates an environment of paranoia and competition, and people are becoming ruthless to get what they want and they’re getting away with it.” MORE

Kennedy’s Mission Continues

“…Two decades after his courageous journey, Kennedy is taking his message of hope and healing across Canada once again, this time with a series of Q and A’s and public viewings of Director Joshua Rofe’s masterpiece ‘Swift Current’. The film depicts Kennedy’s personal journey along with two other victims of childhood sexual abuse. Kennedy is undoubtedly the busiest child advocate in North America, but he wouldn’t want it any other way. “I think everyone would say they have a hectic schedule, in my case, I am passionate about the issues we deal with, and I want to have an impact, that is what keeps me going,” explained Kennedy. MORE

Sheldon Kennedy Sees History Repeating With Nassar Case

For more than two decades, Nassar, who also ran a gymnastics clinic at Michigan State University, used his position of power and trust to prey on vulnerable children. Each account of sexual abuse further exposed a culture of ignorance and victim blaming within competitive sport.The enormity of Nassar crimes seems unfathomable. That he wasn’t stopped sooner is unconscionable. There weren’t just red flags. There were flashing lights and sirens. And they were ignored again and again. And as those wrenching accounts of sexual abuse were shared at Nassar’s sentencing, Sheldon Kennedy saw history repeatingMORE

Kennedy and McNeil – Commentary on Responsible Coaching Movement

Monsters roam the earth, and Larry Nassar was a monster. The doctor for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University was sent to prison for the rest of his life on Wednesday for molesting hundreds of girls, and 156 of them stood in the Michigan courtroom to give victim impact statements, and stare the monster down. Every one was a shattering example of damage, of strength, of courage. MORE
