Tina Tchen was quoted on September 6, 2018 in a Washington Post article, “Hotel chains to tackle worker safety and protection against sexual harassment,” which discussed the pledge by America’s largest hotel brands to protect workers from assault and sexual harassment. The article stated, “Hoteliers including Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott and Wyndham have signed onto the partnership. With the partnership, companies will provide ongoing training and education on identifying and reporting experiences of sexual harassment. And they will provide employees in the United States with personal safety devices to have on hand at work, including in private guest rooms.
Tchen noted, “One of the lessons learned from the last 30 years is a lot of sexual harassment training and policies were off the shelf. They probably all looked alike, across industries, across types of employers. That's why it doesn't work. You do have to have solutions that are tailored to the scenarios that you're working in.”
