Sexual Harassment – The Current Landscape and the Way Forward

We are in a time of accusations and resignations and this disruption will affect all organizations. Sexual harassment is a topic that needs to be addressed directly and openly to avoid damaging your organization’s reputation and the high performing cultures we have worked hard to build. This moderated panel discussion will address the subject of the harassment from three different perspectives – an attorney, human resources professional, and a business owner. Listen in to a lively discussion about how we got here, what we should do, and what challenges are on the horizon once we work through these issues. We will discuss the past, confront the present and anticipate the future. (Please note: The webcast has a Maryland-centric focus.)
