Professional Dimensions, a Milwaukee-based network of professional women, on Thursday released the results from a recent survey in which more than half of its members said they have experienced sexual harassment at work.
Among the respondents, which included women in all stages of their careers, 54 percent said they have experienced workplace sexual harassment as defined by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Those incidents happen most prominently at the entry level, the survey showed.
Professional Dimensions’ members include four generations of women from more than 300 companies.
Survey respondents described situations including male coworkers ogling women, making inappropriate comments and unwanted advances, including physical contact. Meanwhile, 56 percent of respondents said they had witnessed harassment happen to someone else. Read the full story here.
