Outing Sexual Harassment – Bubble? Boundaries? Backlash?

 

Moral outrage about sexual harassment is reaching into every industry. This is a moment of historic social change. Our program is part of the national discussion occurring on where this will all lead and how it will affect relationships between men and women at work.

 

What you’ll learn:

  • Is sexual harassment being re-defined and what are the new boundaries?
  • Are the consequences of a complaint, both for the accused and the victim, changing?
  • Are these lasting changes or will workplace conduct and consequences revert to former practice?
  • Are there unintended consequences of this change in social mores, both for men and women?
  • Is there a backlash coming, from whom, and what will most likely occur?

The panel speakers and moderator for this program were chosen for their years of experience addressing sexual harassment at the highest levels of corporate America. They are opinion leaders and will, with candor, provide their own experiences and perspective on the potential outcomes and consequences of the current change in societal mores about sexual harassment.

 

Space is limited so please register early to assure admission.
