I wonder how the #metoo movement impacted you project, the project management world in your region.

Did anything change?

It seems to be prevalent in Hollywood where the same people that profess to support the movement with generalities, are the same people who did and still do remain silent on naming names. The media is complicit in this too. It has to be one of the great hypocrisies of the last decade or two.

I don't think sexual scandal *could* have any impact on project management, at least not in the US federal sector. For example, if the Secretary of Commerce (a member of the President's cabinet and the top leader in the department under which my agency falls) was found guilty of horrible sexual crimes s/he would be replaced, but projects would continue uninterrupted. The only way project management would be affected is if the Secretary's replacement implemented major changes to the Department of Commerce's strategic direction. However, that wouldn't be a direct result of the sexual scandal, but the policy changes commonly instituted by a new leader.

Can you give an example of how the sexual scandal would affect project management? I can't imagine any likely scenario for this occuring in America. The nature of Canadian business is likely very different than American business despite our shared border, so perhaps a scandal would have more impact in Canada than here.

What if a key person do sexual harassment to an other key person?

you could have to take action that can impact the project.

The #metoo could facilitate denunciation

There had not been any impact (at least which I felt) on the projects that I am handling or the region in general.
