February 7th PWF Meeting
Harrassment in the Workplace
It’s in society. It’s in the workplace. It’s in the news! Harassment. Headlines call out names of the accused. Hefty fines and penalties are assessed upon those that are convicted. Fears of disbelief from others, inaction to the complaint, receipt of blame and social and professional retaliation exist for many that have been harassed. Sadly, only about 30% of people that experience harassment ever complain about it through any formal means. In light of the most recent movements for and calls of awareness to this issue of serious concern, we need to know exactly what is harassment? Will these social norms shift for the better based on the magnitude of this seismic moment in harassment awareness history? This keynote workshop will test your harassment news knowledge, educate you on what you need to know concerning the volatile news topic of sexual harassment and provide you with age, disability, national origin and other protected class harassment knowledge that goes beyond what’s in the news.

How PWF Partners with other Organizations in the Community
– Dreambuilders: Each year the Dreambuilder committee identifies agencies who support women who work in Lexington that are a good fit. Once an agency is selected, then the committee will work with that agency to identify items for donation and delivery of those collected items. Special events for that agency may be featured in the PWF newsletter and on the website/social marketing. That same agency may be considered for support again in three years. This practice allows PWF to support a wide range of groups who are supporting women in Lexington. Download our suggestion form here and make Dreambuilders suggestions for 2018.
– Members of other organizations are invited to Join PWF. As a member there are opportunities for sharing information about upcoming events in the newsletter as well as placing information on the Member Information Table just as members enter the room. Also as a member you or your designate can attend the monthly meeting and network with members so that they know what is coming up at your agency.
– A relatively new option is the PWF Spotlight program, where an organization sponsors a meeting and has the opportunity to speak to the group for 3 minutes before the keynote speaker. Also the Spotlight organization receives recognition leading up to the meeting in the newsletter and on the website / social marketing.
