Advice for people who experience sexual harassment in the workplace and for the women and men that hear about it.

  • David J. Bodney, partner in the law firm Ballard Spahr LLP, who has extensive experience working with newsrooms on sexual harassment and hostile work environments
  • Melissa Forbes, vice president of public relations at LaneTerralever in Phoenix, who says just because you’re entering the heavily-female PR world, don’t think you won’t face sexual harassment
  • Mi-Ai Parrish, the Sue Clark-Johnson Professor in Media Innovation and Leadership, who exposed a state legislator’s inappropriate comment to her while she was publisher of The Arizona Republic
  • Sarah Spain, a reporter, columnist and radio host at ESPN, who took on vicious sexist trolls in an award-winning video “More than Mean”
