Many experts believe that the wave of recent publicity regarding sexual harassment is the beginning of a revolutionary change. Those who have seen or experienced sexual harassment in the workplace are demanding changes in training, and increased awareness on the issue from those in power. They are empowered by the outrage voiced by the public.
Many people with experience in this issue believe that training should be demanded across many levels, not just for leaders and those in management. They believe that training should be provided for employees in all ranks, including customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders. They also believe that sexual harassment in the workplace is a significant psychological problem, and that the characteristics of harassers should be studied. When the causes are understood, strategies can be created for preventing or reducing it.
Even though sexual harassment has been a problem for countless years, there has been very little research into the characteristics of harassers. That makes it difficult to predict who will do it, when, and where. It is known that harassers tend to lack a social conscience, and they engage in immature, manipulative, irresponsible, and exploitative behaviors. By identifying the antecedents to harassment, it will be easier to identify and respond to it appropriately.
