2018

Dynamic Women of Des Moines

Tuesday, July 17

 

Guest Speaker

Kirsten Anderson
Advocate


Most of us have, at one time or another, found ourselves in an uncomfortable position. When you're a woman — even if you're smart, together, and tough — standing up for yourself can be pretty difficult. 

Kirsten Anderson is a passionate communicator who found herself an unlikely advocate for those facing harassment in the workplace after she took a stand against her former employer: the State of Iowa. Kirsten was fired seven hours after formally complaining about repeated harassment and retaliatory behavior by staff and lawmakers at the Iowa Statehouse. She took on the State of Iowa and Iowa Senate Republicans for wrongful termination, harassment and retaliation and won.

Kirsten will share how she overcame obstacles to stand up for those facing harassment in the workplace and how you can do the same, regardless of your situation.

Kirsten Anderson
Advocate

Kirsten Anderson is on a mission to end workplace harassment through education. She found herself an unlikely advocate for those facing harassment in the workplace after she took a stand against her former employer: the State of Iowa. On May 17, 2013 she was fired from her job Communications Director for Iowa Senate Republicans after filing her fourth complaint about repeated harassment and retaliatory behavior by staff and lawmakers at the Iowa Statehouse. She sued the State of Iowa and Iowa Senate Republicans for wrongful termination, harassment, and retaliation and won.


Kirsten has a degree in broadcast journalism and is a 2008 Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute graduate. She’s President Elect of the local chapter of the Association of Women in Communications and in her free time enjoys sharing the hilarious random things her eight year-old son says and attending any live music show with her husband.
