Mujeres y Allies,
Every week there seems to be another scandal of people behaving badly caught on cell phone videos. In the current environment of heightened racial anxiety where Black and Latino communities are being targeted--the videos are an important way to call out injustices or civil rights violations. It’s also true that employee activism is growing inside large companies about pay equity, sexual harassment, or the poor treatment of contractors. Google employees staged one of the largest global employee walkouts last year over the exit package provided to an executive for his inappropriate sexual relationship with an employee. The consequence to the two women organizers has been significant. If you find yourself aware of something illegal, immoral, or unethical--it’s essential to know your rights. Federal workers are protected by the Whistleblower Act of 1989 but inside private companies, this is not the case.
This week’s #3LVCareerHacks is dedicated to making sure you know how to raise your voice for good and protect your career.
