Trust directly affects the chances a victim will come forward to report an incident of sexual harassment or sexual assault.

When leaders at any level don’t have the trust of their workforce, victims and bystanders typically don’t feel they can speak up without fear of retaliation, being ridiculed, humiliated or undermined.
