New York City Chapter
Proskauer Rose LLP
Join us for a moderated panel discussion on adopting updated policies and other best practices for addressing culture change and preventing backlash.
Our panel of experienced in-house employment counsel will talk about innovative approaches that organizations are undertaking to eliminate harassment and combat backlash, including the use of anonymous incident reporting systems, proactive training and transparency about how harassment claims will be handled, and top down messaging on "no tolerance" and company values while maintaining a congenial professional work environment where senior men are encouraged to mentor junior women.
