By Dawn Hrdlica-Burke

PR, meet HR!!  Internal communication is an important part of public relations.  That’s why PR Gumbo will regularly feature Human Resources expert Dawn Hrdlica-Burke!  If you don’t know your HR representative, you should!

This edition of HR On The Run…

Harvey Weinstein, media mogul, founder of Miramax, producer of incredible movies is now another cliche’ loser.  Not shockingly, he’s admitted to perpetrating rampant sexual abuse towards several actresses, assistants, or other women in the Mirimax organization.  This is really, really awful.  More shameful, people didn’t talk about this for years.  I call bull-shit that the board, parters, and bother didn’t know — but that’s another post.

Here are my 4 Tips/Takes on how HR pros can help prevent this occurring in your organization.  Check out the video for more! 

  1. Sexism / Harassment is about Power
  2. If your CEO misbehaves — ALL know.
  3. Create a safe space for employees
  4. Remember your legacy as an HR pro
