EEC 023: A Victim of Bullying in the Police Force with Sherry-Lee Benson-Podolchuk
Sherry-Lee Benson-Podolchuk served for 20 years as a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. During her career, she experienced workplace bullying and sexual harassment. In 2007, she wrote the book, ‘Women Not Wanted’ based on her experience in the Police force. Her new book, “Find Your Voice: Surviving workplace conflict’ explains the strategies she used to deal with conflicts. Her goal is to encourage people to speak up on bullying. Sherry wants to educate and empower victims.
From a place of despair to forgiveness
Sherry explains how she survived workplace bullying and what techniques she used to move from a place of despair to forgiveness, peace, and happiness.
“If I had done nothing to challenge the bullying and harassment then I would have been part of the problem in allowing this violence to continue. Finding my voice after years of trauma was worth it.”
Sherry believes that everyone deserves a safe workplace free from bullying, harassment, and violence. Her purpose is to educate people on bullying and help people deal with workplace conflict.
