Sexual Harassment in Organizational Culture: A Transformative Approach is centered on a long running problem that has vexed organizations across time: Why can’t we prevent sexual harassment that has damaged individuals, organizational terms, organizations, and their larger constituents?

In an effort to create the type of change necessary to prevent such harassment, author Debbie S. Dougherty not only describes what sexual harassment is, but also walks readers through a model of organizational culture to better understand how sexual harassment is woven into organizational culture through communication. This transformational model focuses on how organizational cultures are created and how those cultures can be changed through careful and thoughtful communication.

The book presents organizational problems and then provides theories and research to better understand each problem. Readers learn about theoretical approaches to organizational communication, how to identify hidden problems in organizational culture, strategies for the transformation of culture, and more.

Sexual Harassment in Organizational Culture is written for current and aspiring change agents who are serious about addressing sexual harassment. It is an exceptional text for courses in organizational communication, behavior, and management.

Debbie S. Dougherty (Ph.D. University of Nebraska) is Professor of Communication at the University of Missouri. For more than 20 years, she has been one of the premier scholars studying sexual harassment, with publications in such journals as Harvard Business Review, Human Relations, Journal of Communication, Human Communication Research, Communication Monographs, Management Communication Quarterly, Journal of Applied Communication Research, and Sex Roles.
