Many of us are keenly interested in this topic, especially with the massive amounts of coverage on the daily news.  After being asked about it numerous times over the last few weeks I thought this is an appropriate time to speak bluntly about the topic that reflect on the behavioral norms, your workplace and what you are willing to tolerate. Hollywood has unleashed itself… can you?

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

It is disgusting that HR and senior individuals on the acting side of the business were not protecting new people coming up through the ranks.

 

QUESTIONS

  1. Why did no one speak up? (responsibility rests most upon those senior actors/actresses who had secure careers and could have blown the whistle)
    • Safety Bias. They didn’t want to be the only one to say something and they were more likely to speak up if there was a group of them speaking up together.
    • The behavioral norms allowed people to prey on others.
  2. What happens in the workplace to allow predators to continue doing what they do?
    • Similarity Bias. People want to be a part of the “In” group and modify their own values in order to be accepted.
    • Your culture influences your behavioral norms. Poor behavior standards let harassment flourish.

Our self-interest distorts information and lets us rationalize our behaviors. That is how we create a culture that accepts harassment.

How do you handle it? You HAVE to respond and say something to someone. Go to HR if it happens a second or third time. There are whole communities to back you up now!
