WSJ The Investigation That Changed Everything

JoTo PR Client, White Men as Full Diversity Partners (WMFDP) was featured in an article in The Wall Street Journal on how the Harvey Weinstein scandal will change the work force going forward. This article is available upon request.

The explosion of news out of the Weinstein scandal has sent shockwaves around the world of entertainment and now into the world of business. Sexual harassment is something HR reps at companies loathe talking about and unfortunately they turn their head away from the subject to ignore it happening within their walls.

Michael Welp, a consultant for WMFDP , comments that there will be an intense focus on sexual harassment inside the workplace, though long overdue. The rising stock in women in business will make this an issue that must be addressed due to men no longer being able to turn away from such a topic that is in the front of many people’s minds. Better conversations will and need to happen in order to handle the problem of sexual harassment in the workforce that has been creeping its way around the corporate world for years.

White Men as Full Diversity Partners (WMFDP) is a diversity and Leadership Development firm founded by Bill Proudman, Michael Welp and Jo-Ann Morris in 1996 in Portland, Oregon. WMFDP takes an unorthodox approach toward eradicating bias and discrimination in the workplace. Their client list includes Alaska Airlines, Dell, Lockheed Martin, Northwestern Mutual, Chevron Drilling & Completion, The Nature Conservancy, Mass Mutual, and more. The majority of C-level executives are white and male, and they are frequently omitted from a vital role in diversity and equality. Proudman and Welp observed that these critical subjects were not being taken to the doorstep of these leaders – all to the detriment of struggling minorities and the economy as a whole. With a background that includes extensive field work in post-Apartheid South Africa in the early 1990’s, Proudman and Welp have dedicated the last two decades to educating and engaging leaders of any race, color, gender or orientation. Welp, PhD, is the author of the book “Four Days to Change” which chronicles the journey from rural South Africa, to the boardrooms of America – all to lay the groundwork of a global paradigm shift.
