With sexual harassment claims against high-profile celebrities and politicians continuing to add up, many in the tech industry are looking for more light to be shed on the problems women are still facing in the workplace.

According to a recent survey conducted by The Channel Company, 40 percent of women in channel roles reported experiencing sexual harassment, while 26 percent who said they have not been a victim, know someone who is.

The topic was front and center at this year's Women of the Channel East conference, hosted by The Channel Company, as executives came forward with their own stories of physical and verbal harassment and bullying in the workplace.

With just 6.4 percent of the U.S.'s biggest companies run by women, many believe that adding more women to leadership positions could curb the wave of harassment.
