After years of toleration, a female Wall Street executive takes action but not before serial pawings, and a mauling, at corporate event
The fiasco -- extreme but far from rare, says the author -- and its fallout inspired the 20-year industry veteran to revisit her 'high road' approach
I want to thank the writer for having the guts and intelligence to write her story. I worked for 20+ years as an executive in the insurance industry working for one of the largest p/c carriers in the world. It was very common for high ranking executives to do just what was described in this article with promises of career enhancements for those that cooperated with the unwelcomed advances. Executives making claim to females as “private stock”, invitations to their rooms, and plenty more. Sickening but not unusual.
