Long before the #MeToo movement, bullying was an issue that started to gain traction in the workplace. From universities and boardrooms to offices and politics, it's a form of intimidation and abuse and inherently similar to violence. Acknowledging how prevalent the abuse of power and control tactics are,
particularly toward women, FemPower was created with the goal of empowering women to deal with these situations in the workplace. Join us for a discussion about this topic and learn coping tactics to take back to your workplace.
The panel will be moderated by Betty Galligan, president and owner of Newberry Public Relations & Marketing and current president of the Hope Club
