A primer on the history of sexual harassment—and why it deserves a place in diversity training

{ object.primary_image.title }}

A historical understanding of sexual harassment should be provided in organizational trainings, says this author and historian. Last fall, I taught a new class called “#MeToo: A Cultural History” at Miami University. To my surprise, more than half of the 40 students in this humanities elective were business majors. Several had been inspired to take the class by the #MeToo movement . Others enrolled after having already experienced various forms of workplace sexual harassment. Why are young women entering the workforce in the 2020s still encountering pervasive sexual harassment, and what can we do about it? Read Full Story

What Formula One racing taught me about effective, high-speed teamwork

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The extreme, high-octane sport is a breeding ground for creativity, innovation, and collaboration. When I watched Formula 1: Drive to Survive , the Netflix docuseries offering a glimpse into the world of Formula One racing, I was immediately hooked by the stories of the teams, their drivers, and the triumphs and tragedies on the track. Formula One racing appears to be just another high-octane sport with a rabid fan base, but underneath all the noise and excitement are high-functioning, data-led organizations obsessed with incremental improvements.

With COVID-19, a news story that may be 100% accurate can still unintentionally mislead readers about the greatest threats of the pandemic.

2020 Senate race predictions: What to watch for on Election Tuesday

{ object.primary_image.title }}

In order for the Democrats to take control of the Senate, they need to pick up three seats on Tuesday if Biden wins the presidency, or four seats if Biden loses the presidency. The 2020 election is one of the most anxiety-ridden, polarized presidential elections in American history. The two candidates couldn’t have more differing views for America, and the ultimate winner will likely have a lasting impact on the average American’s life for decades after the end of their next presidential term. That being said, though the country is anxious to know if Biden or Trump will lead us during the next four years, it’s important to note that their ability to enact their vision for America is dependent largely not just on their own election to office, but which party ends up winning the Senate.
