Sexual Harassment in the Meetings Industry

PCMA Convene

The men worked in media and film, corporations and government — no industry seemed exempt. Is this too an industry in which people who have been harassed have kept quiet for years, or spoken out only to go unheard? Indeed, hospitality and food services — which overlaps significantly with the events industry — has the unsettling distinction of leading all other sectors in reported cases of sexual harassment.
