Combatting Abuse

September 2019

The start-up Lytt from the city of Münster addresses one of the most prevalent problems in the working world: on-the-job harassment.

Lytt founder Lara von Petersdorff-Campen came up with the idea during an internship after experiencing how difficult it is to report sexist behavior. The rise of the #MeToo movement convinced her that she was hardly alone. And together with her partner Marvin Homburg, she decided to create a platform to allow victims to complain about abuse anonymously.

Lytt offers the service as a subscription to companies that want to improve employee satisfaction and health. Clients include Germany’s rail service Deutsche Bahn and the Bertelsmann Foundation.
Petersdorff-Campen and Homburg hope that in five years Lytt will have established itself as a corporate standard and been translated into the world’s major languages.
