On March 5, attorney Lisa Bloom, attorney Randa Osman, founder and CEO of AllVoices Claire Schmidt, and journalist Danielle Berrin will join us to discuss harassment, abuse, and power dynamics in 2018, and the legal implications, questions, and next steps arising from the current cultural conversation.
Beginning in October, decades of harassment, bullying, and abuse of women were brought to light with allegations against some of the country’s most powerful men. The ripple effect empowered thousands to report inappropriate and illegal behavior, and millions more joined the movement on social media to shed light on rampant and widespread abuses withstood on a regular basis.
The movement has had both tangible and intangible impacts on the cultural conversation, but what are the legal implications? What process does speaking out activate? How might this affect the way lawyers, judges, and juries assess sexual harassment and assault cases? How will our culture and judicial system differentiate between bad behavior and illegal activity? And what human resources policy changes might you see in your own workplace? Join us and a panel of experts in the legal field who are or have been at the center of this historic moment to discuss these questions and next steps.
