It is well known that women are at a greater risk than men of being targeted by crime, both online and offline. On the Internet cyber-stalkers and online harassers pose a huge and growing threat; in the "real world" women run a disproportional risk of being victims of sexual assault and other violence. This is not, however, a question that can be pushed aside into the "personal" arena-it must be dealt with in the workplace, because it is in public and on the job that many of these crimes are committed. Homicidal violence is the leading cause of death for women in the work force.
For women and girls, "harassment" is not merely unpleasant – it is frightening and intimidating, with force behind it to back up the threat. Rape and death threats have become increasingly common on social media, and with the violence they threaten itself the daily reality of women and girls worldwide, it is troublingly possible that these threats will actually be carried out. Women have a 1 in 5 chance of being raped and a 1 in 4 chance of being physically assaulted by someone they know. Again, violence in the workplace is the leading cause of death for women workers, where the victimizers are able to target and track their victims online and by monitoring their mobile phone activities. If you are a woman, or if you work with women, who make up 47% of the U. S. workforce, your safety or the safety of your coworkers is of course of paramount importance.
This program by expert speaker Joe Rosner will cover the scope and impact of violence against women in the workforce and offer effective countermeasures to greatly reduce the risks and mitigate harm when such incidents occur. Learn simple, effective strategies and techniques to protect and defend yourself and your coworkers against threats of violence as well as violent or endangering actions in both real and virtual environments.
