A regular contributer to the Huffington Post on matters relating to gender and diversity in the workplace, Dr. Bernice Ledbetter pens a column on how "enablers" are part of the sexual harrassment problem – even if they are not direct perpetrators. Dr. Ledbetter says sexual harrassment "is often not limited to the actions of one specific individual, but it involves enablers who turned a blind eye to inappropriate and abhorrent behavior."
Dr. Ledbetter is Practitioner Faculty of Organizational Theory and Management and Academic Director of the MS in Management and Leadership program at the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School, and Director of the Center for Women in Leadership at Pepperdine University. In this piece, she offers advice on how people can actively and safely change a work culture that discourages speaking out against wrongdoing.
