As we've seen since last year, the entertainment industry has seen some big shakeups in light of the Me Too and Time’s Up movements against sexual harassment. Now, Houston businesses are hoping to tackle the issue in the workplace by starting a dialogue about sexual misconduct policies and ensuring that there is no gray area for their employees.

Hence the first-ever Speak Out and Take Action Against Sexual Harassment Summit, a conference on May 22 for members of Houston's business community featuring keynote addresses and panels on sexual misconduct. The aim is to have open discussions across different industries and business sizes.

In the audio above, Craig Cohen talks with James Tastard of High Performance Network, and Josh Levs, the conference's keynote speaker.
