I recently joined a company. Our training sessions are going on. During pair programming round, to try to make things go faster(as we are falling behind) when I tried to grab my pair's laptop(as we were working on that machine) my hands did brushed against her top body.
She then stormed off. After today's session, I tried to calm her by saying sorry (and that it was by mistake) but she was not in the mood to listen and started shouting at me in front of almost all batch and said that I've done it before (I am sure I did not).
Usually, she is rude. But today she was very very rude.
What should I do?
Should I go talk to an hr person? I feel sorry for my mistake and angry for allowing her to talk to me like that (I could not say anything when she went like that, I was dumbstruck and scared. I still am).
My new company is known for having a female-friendly environment can talking to an hr hurt my carrier?
Edit: It was my forearm that touched and I tried to get her laptop because the screen sharing at the last moment stopped working. And I think that she knew that I was the one who was going to work on the code (because coming from different background, etc..).
Why screen sharing?: Because the code was not pushed to the git hence I could not pull.
I'm a male. I have a total of two years of work experience. Location is India.
I want to know what is the worst that could happen out of this scenario? (other than public shaming which already did). And how do I defend myself in that scenario (if at all)?
