Thank you, Zoe, for bravely sharing your experiences – and giving a voice to the many other women who have and continue to suffer at that hands of these opportunistic predators.

Zoe’s devastating post proves that unfortunately, the need for timeTo and the many others fighting to eradicate sexual harassment and other forms of gender-based oppressions and violence, both within our industry and in wider society, has never been greater.
This alongside our recent research findings, which told us that 49% of people believed that sexual harassment would be more of an issue when we start to return to offices, is exactly why #timeTo created our sexual harassment awareness training. Leaders, managers and people teams – equip your teams now with the knowledge and understanding around why sexual harassment happens, and give them the tools to question it and call it out.
