Kirsten Anderson |  More Than Words: Turn #MeToo into #ISaidSomething

@ BEAVERDALE BOOKS

 

In More Than Words: Turn #MeToo into #ISaidSomething, Kirsten Anderson shares her remarkable journey from the debilitating despair of harassment to hope.

After years of employment in a verbally abusive environment at the Iowa Statehouse, she lost her identity as an assertive, career-minded, confident, and empowered woman. Her relationship with her toxic employer ended when she was fired just hours after issuing a formal complaint. A legal and personal journey ensued.

Anderson won her case. Since then, she has made it her mission to educate others about the complexities of sexual harassment, bullying, and retaliation in the workplace. By sharing the realities targets of harassment face, she intends to educate readers, help targets move forward and initiate change in toxic work environments to eliminate harassment once and for all.

About the Author:

Kirsten Anderson is a passionate communicator who began her professional career with a degree in broadcast journalism from Northwest Missouri State University. She found herself an unlikely advocate for others after experiencing sexual harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination in her role of Communications Director at the Iowa Statehouse. She took her former employer to court and won.

Since then, Anderson has made it her mission to help other targets of harassment, support those who love them, and educate bystanders. She founded Equitas Solutions, a consultancy to help business build better, safer workplaces, and wrote More Than Words: Turn #MeToo into #ISaidSomething, a book empowering change in individuals, groups, and work environments.

Anderson was 2018 Metro Woman of the Year and a finalist for Inspiring Woman of Iowa. When she isn’t transforming workplace culture, she and her husband spend time revitalizing their historic home. They also enjoy playing board games and cycling with their son and watching him play football.
