Women in Listed Derivatives is presenting an interactive and informative workshop on Sexual Harassment at work in the #MeToo Era. This event will be conducted by Jennifer Schoen Gilbert of Stowell & Friedman, Ltd., a law firm dedicated to defending employees' civil rights including against sexual harassment. The workshop will provide an open ended discussion and practical tips and tools for employees. The workshop is open to all and is designed to elicit discussion on this important topic. A networking reception will follow.
The issue of sexual harassment is getting some much-needed attention this year as big names are being called to answer for bad behavior. But it isn’t always an outrageous act that triggers a sexual harassment claim in the workplace. A 2016 Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) report found that sexual harassment remains a persistent problem in the office. The #MeToo movement has ignited a powerful dialogue about sexual harassment, sexual assault, and other forms of misogyny in the workplace. While many employees are emboldened by the movement, it remains difficult to confront the situation without the fear of facing retaliation. All men and women deserve to work in an environment that they feel safe and secure in, and that starts with cracking down on sexual harassment in the workplace.
