June 11, 2018 Luncheon

11:45am - 1pm

End Workplace Harassment Today

Registration is now open for the AFP June Luncheon.

Luncheon Location:
Plymouth Congregational Church, Waveland Room
4126 Ingersoll Ave, Des Moines, Iowa

About the program:

In the #metoo era, it's time to start thinking differently about how we approach and deal with sexual harassment in the workplace. Once a victim, then a fighter, and now an advocate, Kirsten will share how she found her voice and overcame obstacles to stand up for those facing harassment in the workplace. She will also share how you can do the same, regardless of your situation.

About the speaker:

Kirsten Anderson is on a mission to end workplace harassment through education. She found herself an unlikely advocate for those facing harassment in the workplace after she took a stand against her former employer: the State of Iowa. On May 17, 2013 she was fired from her job Communications Director for Iowa Senate Republicans after filing her fourth complaint about repeated harassment and retaliatory behavior by staff and lawmakers at the Iowa Statehouse. She sued the State of Iowa and Iowa Senate Republicans for wrongful termination, harassment, and retaliation and won.

Kirsten has a degree in broadcast journalism, is a 2018 Inspiring Woman of Iowa Finalist, and a 2008 Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute graduate. She’s President Elect of the Central Iowa chapter of the Association of Women in Communications and in her free time enjoys sharing the hilarious random things her eight year-old son says and attending any live music show with her husband.

Join us Monday, June 11, 2018 for our next AFP Chapter meeting.
