If the conflict arises out of sexual harassment, racial discrimination, or other unlawful or harmful behavior, you might have a duty to report it. But how you report it is important, too. If you are emotionally triggered by it, allow yourself to calm down. Separate yourself from others and write down what happened, when, where, who witnessed the event(s), and why it was inappropriate. This will ensure your complaint is heard and that all the pertinent details are included in any investigation.
