Dear Anna,

Why is it so easy to call people out on small things – like where to save a document – and not be prepared to call out the big things like harassment and bullying? 

Each group has their ways of doing things. The more the behaviour you would like to change is part of the way the group does things, the more difficult it will be to say something while you are in the group. Take sexual harassment. It’s something everyone agrees should not happen – and yet it persists. Why can a colleague call out a behaviour related to being late for a meeting and not say something to the person displaying inappropriate art, telling inappropriate jokes or touching inappropriate body parts.
