In your role as the new human resources (HR) manager, you plan to prepare a series of videos with various scenarios. These scenarios will allow the employees to view real-life sexual harassment issues that they may have to deal with.

You are asking one of your male managers and one of your female managers to help create the video. In the scenario, the male manager frequently acts as a male chauvinist and seems oblivious to the existence of gender discrimination, while the female has actually experienced it.

You want the video to specifically address the following 3 issues, to sensitize your managers to gender discrimination:

* Find an example of a current event in the news that describes a real sexual harassment issue. Use proper APA citations.
* How was the issue addressed?
* If the responsible manager and employees involved had been more aware of the Civil Rights Act or the gender sensitivity issues involved, how could he or she have handled it differently?

Answer the 3 questions and describe how the two different managers may view the current event used in the training video differently.
