He Said She Said HE SAID, SHE SAID has been designed to help employees evaluate their own conduct as it relates to sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior at work. Seven interactive scenarios use riveting performances and twisting plot lines to subtly challenge employees' beliefs and perceptions. As employees progress through each scenario they first hear from the alleged victim as they present their view of the events in question. The DVD pauses and employees are asked to come to an initial conclusion. Discussions follow, which allow conflicting points of view to be aired and explored.
