034: Sexual Harassment in the Creative Industry with Kait Masters

January 25, 2018

Sexual Harassment in the Creative Industry Kait Masters

Sexual Harassment in the Creative Industry

Unfortunately, sexual harassment in the creative industry is more prevalent than many people realize.  In turn, following the rise of the #MeToo movement, stories coming out of Hollywood, news outlets, and other places of power have caused an uptick in much-needed awareness on how devastatingly widespread sexual harassment and assault are in today’s society.  This includes in creative fields.

In order to gain information, the leadership at Rising Tide Society and Honeybook sent a sexual harassment and assault survey to their members.  They allowed people to share their stories anonymously.  In addition, they recorded how these acts affected their work and creative environment.

Because many entrepreneurs don’t have an HR department, hopefully this episode will shed some light on how widespread sexual harassment and assault are in the occupations of Rising Tide Society and Honeybook members.  We hope this will provide some advice on what you can do if you or someone you know has been hurt by these acts.

Although this one is tough, we believe it is a necessary episode for The Bearded Tog listeners.  In addition, if you are a victim of sexual harassment or assault, you are not alone. There are resources available for you.  In order to make change, people have to speak up.  As a creative community, we want to do everything we can to give a voice to anyone who has experienced sexual assault.
