A Chicago nonprofit is offering a novel service to address workplace harassment: sending cautionary emails to alleged harassers on behalf of unnamed accusers.

Why it matters: Workplace harassment — sexual and otherwise — remains a persistent but underreported problem, according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

By the numbers: 81% of women will face sexual harassment over the course of their lifetime, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.

  • But EEOC data suggests that 75% of people harassed at work will never report it.

Context: The Wolf and The Bee co-founders Cheri Wolf and Sandy Lisonbee say they both faced sexual harassment at companies where the HR department failed to support them.

  • So they created an entire website of advice for addressing workplace harassment before the problem escalates — and last month they added The BeeMail service.
