The ever-changing landscapes of political, social and technological advances mean that risk factors for organizations are constantly evolving.
Enter: the #MeToo movement.
The #MeToo movement has impacted some of the most powerful men in entertainment, politics and the judiciary. The movement began on October 5, 2017, when the New York Times published an article in which several women, including actress Ashley Judd, accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and misconduct spanning three decades. The hashtag, created more than a decade earlier by civil rights activist Tarana Burke, thereafter became a viral campaign. The movement created increased awareness of sexual harassment and misconduct and a culture of zero impunity for men in powerful positions who abused women.
