Maine needs your help! MTI, CEI, MVF, Maine Angels and others in Maine’s innovation economy have established the MaineCanDo platform designed to help individuals, employers, and investors to prevent future #MeToo incidents in the places where we work, shop, eat, and play. As part of this effort, MaineCanDo has launched a survey to better understand sexual harassment in Maine.
Over 250 individuals – both employers and employees in Maine have taken the survey so far, but MaineCanDo is looking to get closer to 550 respondents. Please consider filling out the survey, it will take less than 5 minutes and it will benefit the State of Maine.
Maine Venture Fund has helped to make this survey possible because we believe that the information gleaned from this survey will help guide Maine’s business and startup ecosystem as it works to create safer and more respectful workplaces.
MaineCanDo is working with Pan Atlantic Research, an independent Maine-based market research company to create and disseminate this comprehensive survey of sexual harassment and workplace culture issues. The data that is collected from the completed surveys will be used by organizations to understand the level of workplace sexual harassment and to help inform strategies to address it. The survey is confidential, with any identifying information, including IP Address or Geodata, stripped from the data automatically. If you are the leader of your organization please consider sending this to your entire company.
MaineCanDo is an organization that helps individuals, employers, and investors prevent future #MeToo incidents in Maine. In June of 2018, the organization launched a platform that provides resources to entrepreneurs, startups, and businesses. The resources are intended to help organizations better understand the law as well as create respectful, safe, and inclusive workplaces.
You can find additional information about #MaineCanDo along with resources about sexual harassment in Maine at their website. We greatly appreciate your time and your support for this important initiative.
