Thank you so much for your openness to inviting your employees to participate in this vital research.

#MaineCanDo is conducting research with both employers and employees to better understand how sexual harassment is experienced and dealt with across Maine in the #MeToo era. Your employees can access the survey via the following link: https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/4839517/MaineCanDo1.

Once again, responses from both employers and employees are strictly confidential, and all data collected in this survey will only ever be analyzed or reported at the state and county level – data from employee responses will never be matched to employer responses.

A sample email invitation to employees at your organization follows. Please feel free to customize as appropriate for your needs:

[Organization] is proud to be partnering with #MaineCanDo and Pan Atlantic Research, an independent Maine-based market research company, as they conduct the first comprehensive survey of sexual harassment and workplace culture issues in Maine in the #MeToo era.

As part of this research, Executive] has completed a survey about company policies around sexual harassment.  We'd like to invite you to fill out this brief survey about your own experiences as well at the link below:

This data will be used by organizations such as #MaineCanDo and the Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault to understand and raise awareness of the level of workplace sexual harassment in Maine.

This survey is completely confidential - your responses will be delivered directly to Pan Atlantic Research without being shared with anyone at the organization, and all data will be anonymized and analyzed at the county and state level, not by individual organization.  Your responses will never be connected with any identifying information.
