One in three women in the financial asset management industry have been sexually harassed at work, a sharp increase over past years.
Women report being sent to "sweeten up" clients while wearing short skirts. Women supervisors paid less than their male subordinates. Professional women routinely asked to get coffee for male colleagues.
To start to demand change, shareholders of the $285 billion dollar global company Brookfield Asset Management have brought forward a resolution on workplace sexual misconduct, the first of its kind ever filed in Canada. But Brookfield is so resistant to change that they're refusing to let the shareholder resolution even get heard at their annual meeting.
Now SumOfUs is taking Brookfield to court to make sure our proposal gets on the table, and we need your help to pay for the legal fees to make sure sexual harassment in the finance industry isn't once again swept under the rug.
Please can you donate today to push Brookfield to hear our shareholder proposal on sexual harassment?
