After the recent headline news story about sexual harassment in the legal profession, it is clear that, as a profession, we need to do more to prevent workplace sexual harassment.

Content development for this session has been led by Sara Forte, employment lawyer, workplace investigator, and nationally recognized thought leader on the subject of sexual harassment.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • what is sexual harassment?
    • review of the legal definition of sexual harassment
    • examples of conduct and comments on the spectrum of sexual harassment
  • professional conduct rules
    • review of applicable professional standards for lawyers
  • organization policy
    • brief overview of your organization's policy, what is included, where to find it
  • role of bystanders
    • explain the power and importance of bystanders in creating a culture of respect
    • review the range of bystander intervention strategies
  • bystander skills exercise
    • apply bystander intervention strategies to example scenarios

Join us to be a part of the solution and learn to respond to and report workplace sexual harassment!
