Abstract

With increased awareness of workplace harassment in recent years, the idea of enhanced reporting around sexual misconduct has gained traction. As a result, several technologies – from smartphone apps to well-publicized services – have been introduced with the goals of preventing, enabling reports of, and even predicting sexual misconduct at work, school and in public. But to what extent are these technologies secure and accessible to survivors? This Note documents the existing resources and proposes a framework focusing on privacy and participation for evaluating these tools intended to benefit survivors.
