The Scarlet Letters Project

Workplace abuse is alive and well.


Millions of people have experienced abuse, and little research or support exists. Estimates on the prevalence of the problem vary wildly, and no substantive resources exist to support those going through this. Abuse takes many forms and discriminates on many bases. The conversation, and research must move forward.

With this, we are pleased to announce the launch of #TheScarletLettersProject: A Conversation on Workplace Bullying, Equity, and Trauma - a collaborative awareness campaign championed by Enlightened Solutions and The Women’s Leadership Guild.  

Starting Monday, March 11, we’ll be sharing anonymous accounts of those who have experienced bullying, harassment, and abuse.  Our goal is to highlight the ways individuals and organizations can combat toxic workplace cultures while strengthening and encouraging equity and inclusion.

If you or someone you know would like to submit a story anonymously, share your story here. (Note: All personal information, names, locations, and dates will be redacted. )

We invite you to follow and share the conversation by following #TheScarletLettersProject on social media. Also, stay tuned for more information on  #TheScarletLettersProject event in May at Jumpstart, Inc.

In solidarity,

The Women’s Leadership Guild and Enlightened Solutions
