Navigating Workplace Harassment Issues in the #MeToo Era – Houston

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Media reports of workplace sexual harassment and sexual assault by high-profile individuals and high-level executives have captured the public’s attention. The #MeToo movement, focused on sexual harassment and discrimination, has led to more and more women sharing their experiences and has encouraged employees to speak out.

As more sexual harassment claims come to light—with sometimes very public consequences—many employers are seeking a more proactive approach to reviewing harassment policies, response plans and practices, and workplace culture. In the current climate, it would be prudent for all organizations to assess risk factors and implement measures and policies to minimize risks related to workplace harassment and misconduct.

Join us for this important event to assess whether your organization is fully prepared to respond to a workplace harassment crisis. The event is hosted by Houston partners Stefanie Moll, Michelle Pector, and Nancy Patterson and will feature Washington, DC partner Grace Speights. Grace is a national leader on these issues, having handled some of the most current and important workplace sexual harassment issues companies are facing today.
