1 Hour MCLE credit in Elimination of Bias

In the wake of the #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter movements, there has been considerable scrutiny of workplace culture. Indeed, whether justified or not, employer representatives —including in-house and outside counsel and human resources professionals—have been decried as ineffective in dealing with sexual and other workplace discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. For many employers, simply satisfying basic legal requirements is a thing of the past. In this presentation, we will focus on what new approaches might be warranted in order to deal effectively with sexual and other workplace discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. We will suggest and begin exploring possibilities through this presentation, with the intention of inspiring subsequent explorations of solutions.
