Insight On Business the News Hour

More Than Words with Kirsten D. Anderson

We recorded this conversation before her book was out. Meet Kirsten Anderson speaker and now author of "More than Words - Turn Me Too into I Said Something". For some of you you may remember that Kirsten delt with workplace ssexual harassment while at the Iowa Legislature. Those issues prompted legal action and Kirsten was awarded $1.75 million. Here we talk, a bit about that, but more importantly why she wrote the book. She will tell you this is a "how to" book for people who are dealing with workplace harassment. Meet Kirsten Anderson oh, and yes, you can now order her book.
