We already know that being harassed or bullied takes a toll on one’s mental health. Research is very clear that targets can develop anxiety, depression, and even symptoms of PTSD.
But what about the damage caused by the ensuing requirement to remain silent via an NDA? I’m aware of only one research article on this question, which you can find here if you’d like to read it.
I also don’t see much conversation out there about NDA’s and equity & inclusion. With employers everywhere claiming to be inclusive, I wonder how many of them would put their money where their mouth is when it comes to asking a target to sign an NDA.
This is why the conference I’m chairing for the International Association on Workplace Bullying & Harassment signed on Gretchen Carlson and Julie Roginsky.
They’re going to tell us about their experiences and their plans to make change through Lift Our Voices, a nonprofit focused on the eradication of nondisclosure agreements for toxic work issues and mandatory arbitration clauses.
Join me in-person or virtually as I interview them about their experiences at FOX News and their NDA’s; and how they feel about their stories being told across the globe while they can’t confirm or deny that any of what’s told is true. (Bombshell is a recent example.)
So join me and other attendees from around the globe! Get registered and get this event on your calendar.
If you don’t, you’ll miss out on 80+ presentations on such topics as:
- Bullying and neurobiology
- The role of unions
- Overcoming challenges in investigations
- “The problem” with workplace respect policies
- Culture change with innovative new tools
- Models for workplace reconciliation and restoration
- New methods for coaching people who bully
- And, so much more.
All addresses, keynotes and presentations will be recorded; virtual attendees can attend live to participate in Q&A or watch the recordings on their own time. Virtual attendees will not have access to the workshops.
If you have any questions, please email me at Info@CivilityPartners.com.
