The Blaze: A report from Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) shows evidence of unintended effects from the #MeToo movement. Johnny C. Taylor Jr. who is the CEO of SHRM, shared their findings which states opportunities for women have been negatively affected.
Excerpt from The Blaze:
“There were men who specifically said I will not hire a woman going forward,” he explained.
“Those who said they would hire a woman said they would not travel with one, and they, more importantly they would not engage in activities after business hours,” Taylor added.
“And you know oftentimes, that’s when the relationships are built,” he continued, “after hours dinners with clients, et cetera, trips, I’m a lawyer for example, and you know, you’re the associate, and the partner won’t travel with you for fear that it could be perceived, or he could be subject to a sexual harassment claim.”
