“As a CEO, it is my job to stick to our company’s guideline which is to help spread the message about respect, boundaries, positivity and inspirations.
This message is from the company’s heart and each of the members working for StandOUT Publications. We all have some dark stories and sometimes we keep them tucked away for decades. Not anymore because there’s a big event coming this weekend to help spread the awareness of boundaries and rules in workspaces for women and men. This event is a great one to attend to support. Personally, I have decided to share a few scenarios to help our audience and readers understand the ‘why’. Business owners create solutions for the world that comes from their heart and mostly have the reason WHY they’re doing it.
One time I was working at a job with a few bosses. One of the boss made me feel extremely uncomfortable by shaking my hand everyday then rubbing my arm quickly after. When he found out I only lived a few blocks away from him he started to stalk slowly. He would ask me personal things and I got to the point where I told the other bosses about him and I quit afterwards.
One summer, I was working at a golf course as a beer cart girl. I could not keep track of how many verbal harassments I encountered. I would go home wondering what was said to me was worth complaining to my bosses and put my position in risk.
At an event way back when, I was getting a photo taken with a man at an event while I was working. He turned me around to hug me and told me to pose like I was having sex with him for the photos. The photos ended up showing me pushing him off and I reported him to the police right after.”
