…d what I love about Chayn is how we’re continuously learning and adapting to the latest technology. Even after working in the media and entertainment sector for a decade, Chayn is the most technologically savvy organization I’ve ever been a part of. It’s great to be part of such an energized team.”
Being married to a woman and/or having a daughter/mother/sister does not excuse a perpetrator from what they did when they claim to have been less informed, so they should never be used as a crutch. It is very unfair to the women in their life.
Now your average economist’s rejoinder would probably be: “well, if people value well-being so much, then pay extra for it”. Ah, but. And it’s a big but. What if we can’t? What if, just as Bodega undervalues our well-being, so the well-being that we create on the job is undervalued, too? After all, the average person doesn’t often earn anything extra for being a humane, wise, just, good teacher, doctor, lawyer, and so on. And there’s a bigger problem. What if we can’t buy well-being because it’s just not there to buy? What if there are deep racial biases, for example? And if people aren’t incentivized for creating it, then of course it itself will be undersupplied. So you can’t go to the mall and buy well-being like a product: it’s something that needs lasting human involvement to be created. Thus, in vast sectors of the economy, for many groups of people, from food to energy to transport, well-being is undersupplied to the point that it’s vanished.

I know of people who have been forced to resign due to harassment and are subsequently unable to find new jobs and new sources of income. This is because at it’s core sexual harassment is about an abuse of power. The person in a position of power leaves the victim in a position where they either remain silent or lose their livelihood. We cannot be speaking of building inclusive workplaces for women (who bear the brunt of majority of sexual harassment cases) when we are still contending with such rudimentary issues as ensuring that offices are free of harassment.
Based on how effectively my complaint was bungled, Ushahidi’s reputation has taken a massive hi…
Character attacks: During the inquiry, I had several harmless and not so harmless personality flaws used against me. Because I have a potty mouth and used the word “fuck” during the incident, it was suggested that I am the one who turned the conversation to sex and thus invited Daudi’s sexual overtures. This was despite the fact that I did not use the word in a sexual context (see this video for various uses of the word “fuck”). It was also implied that I actively welcomed Daudi’s sexual proposition because I did not vociferously voice my protest at his inappropriate remarks but instead tried to change the subject.
