Meeting: January 6th @ 6:30pm

Difficult or inappropriate situation at work? Is it sexual harassment? What to ignore, what to verbalize something about and how to do it, and what to deal with assertively.

Because of the sensitivity and legal implications for such a topic, we are setting up a few ground rules for the meeting:

• Zero tolerance for phones or recording policy during the discussion. Not only for privacy of those sharing difficult stories, but also for protection against inappropriate use.
• No names are to be used either for implication.
We want those attending to feel as safe as possible.
If you have any questions, please message us, and we will be happy to answer. We look forward to seeing you there.

Date: January 6th, 2020 

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Alaska Airmen Association, 4200 Floatplane Dr.
