For the Huffington Post, Dr. Bernice Ledbetter writes about the after effects of a newly robust conversation surrounding workspace sexual harrassment. Dr. Ledbetter quotes content from recent New York Times columns on the matter of men retreating from engagement with women for fear of being falsely accused. Says Dr. Ledbetter: "On one hand we need to send the message loud and clear that ANY sexual misconduct, harassment, or degradation of women is completely unacceptable. But at the same time we don’t want to discourage men who genuinely are working hard to support and advance women in the workplace."
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. She contribues regularly to the Huffington Post on matters relating to gender and diversity in the workplace.
