#MeToo Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Legal Workplace

06:00PM - 08:00PM Warren Building - NT01

 #MeToo catapulted sexual harassment into the public consciousness, but sex-based discrimination is not news to lawyers.  Women working in the legal profession have long endured inappropriate sexual comments, demands, and other forms of harassment.  In many ways, lawyers and legislative staffers are no different from others who have stepped forward in this moment—we fear for our jobs, professional reputations, and status within the community if we report harassment and abuse at the hands of partners, lawmakers, and judges.  Lawyers and staffers, however, can do more than post hashtags.  We have legal, ethical, and legislative tools at our disposal, and the time is right to engage in serious reform.  Join us for a conversation about preventing sexual harassment in the legal workplace, and how we can lead the way in demanding workplaces free from sex-based harassment, abuse, and discrimination for all women.  Registration is free, but required. https://www.wcl.american.edu/secle/registration 1 hour CLE available upon request.
