An award-winning TV host and filmmaker is in Erie discussing workplace harassment.
More than 100 people attended the 11th Annual Women in Leadership Development Conference, also known as WILD.
The keynote speaker was Darieth Chisolm, the Founder of 50 Shades of Silence… a movement that brings awareness to cyber harassment. Chisolm says a paradigm shift is helping to empower women.
Chisolm says, “We’re… seeing more people who are coming out and speaking about this. Unfortunately, though, we lack strong enough legislation and laws in place to properly prosecute perpetrators.”
Hosted by the Gannon University Small Business Development Center, WILD is expanding to four events throughout the year.
The next event will be a forum on sales and marketing on May 16th.
