Because so many women gave us feedback that they needed more actionable steps in order to combat sexual harassment in their everyday work places, we create this upstanding workshop! They wanted to have the right language to call out sexual harassment.

Naming and Shaming
Lots of participants brought up good points about not jumping into the bold naming and shaming. How, in some situations, when the violation is less serious or perhaps the impact may be unknown by the perpetrator, it may be better to have a private, diplomatic, honest conversation. Some girls spoke about how, when they did that, the perpetrators were genuinely upset and became aware of the impact of their words/behaviors. But, if one jumps too quickly into naming and shaming, you may alienate someone who otherwise could have otherwise been an ally.
It seemed lots of women felt that in situations of softer violations, diplomatic responses should be tried before public naming and shaming.
So it's really a question of discernment, of when to use what. We discussed many of the complexities.
