A press release from State Senator Karen McConnaughay:
Sen. McConnaughay appointed to Senate Task Force on Sexual Discrimination and Harassment Awareness and Prevention
SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Karen McConnaughay (R-St. Charles) is one of five Republican lawmakers appointed to serve on the newly formed Senate Task Force on Sexual Discrimination and Harassment Awareness and Prevention.
“Sexual harassment and discrimination needs to be taken seriously, and has absolutely no place in the workplace,” said Sen. McConnaughay.
“I look forward to serving on this Task Force to help ensure that employees across the state are being treated fairly and appropriately. As a member, I promise to fulfill the duties and responsibilities assigned to us, even when the national conversation on the topic dies down.”
The goal of the new Task Force will be to conduct a comprehensive review of legal and social consequences of sexual discrimination and harassment in both the public and private sectors. The Task Force will study and make recommendations on combating sexual discrimination and harassment in workplaces, educational institutions, and in State and local government.
Other Senate Republicans appointed to the Task Force are Senators:
Pamela Althoff (R-32nd District)
John Curran (R-41st District)
Jil Tracy (R-47th District)
Dale Righter (R-55th District)
Members of the Task Force will not receive compensation for their service.
