Challenging Authority

I sent a three-page letter to my firm's EEO officer two weeks ago. My dean has bullied me and physically threatened me and tried to use his male dominance over me to get me to do things I didn't think were right.

The letter included specific dates and events and listed the people to whom I had reported the behavior.

I've been waiting two weeks.

I asked for an update today.

The response I received was that they are "still working it."

I don't know if I've been blown off or what. I feel like I took a brave step to report the harassment ... that was hard enough.

Now ... nothing.

I start my new job next week.

I won't let the door hit me on my way out.
