Sexual harassment is not new, but the way we are responding to it has taken on a powerful transformation as a result of the #MeToo movement. Lawyers and bar leaders are taking the lead to not only stop sexual harassment in the workplace, but to take proactive steps to prevent it from being an issue in the first place. During this informative webinar you will receive guidance from employment and labor law attorney Kimberlee Gee of Kimberlee Gee Legal about relevant sexual harassment laws, and how lawyers and bar associations should be responding to the shift in social attitudes and calls for personal accountability that have resulted from the #MeToo movement. Participants will also hear from State Bar of Arizona Diversity and Outreach Advisor Elena Nethers about their recent “Sexual Harassment: Changing the Conversations” program, as well as Pamela Roberts from the ABA Commission onWomen in the Profession on their recently released Zero Tolerance: Practices for Combating Sex-Based Harassment in the Legal Profession Toolkit.
