The #MeToo movement has brought about significant awareness of the extent to which exploitation, abuse, harassment and discrimination exist among different sexes and genders. Effectively, the “good ole boys” networks of former times are on their death knell and new opportunities are opening up to persons who were formerly disadvantaged by attitudes and behaviors of the past which are now deemed unacceptable. Firms that have failed to modify their culture and attitudes to provide more respect to others face ostracism, legal liabilities and even prosecution.

Why Should You Attend:

In this webinar, you will receive useful information on the history and circumstances that have brought about these cultural and legal changes. A review of key events which have led to these changes will be explored, as well as key cases and their consequences. This background information will help to inform the challenges that many firms face in bringing about a more equitable working environment and the actions that have led to complaints by victims over the past decades. Relevant laws will be highlighted as well as strategies to take to reduce the risk and consequences of illicit behavior and activities with respect to sex and gender. Failure of a firm to adapt to the new paradigm can result in fines and penalties, as well as severe loss of public confidence and reputation.

  • A short background and history of events and other factors leading to the raised awareness of sex and gender issues in business and the workplace
