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, striving simply to satisfy basic legal requirements is a thing of the past.  In this Breakfast Briefing, 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 a presentation that includes real-time polling and other forms of creative and interactive engagement, with the intention of inspiring subsequent explorations of solutions.  So bring your ideas, voices, and smartphones (to text for polling) on potential culturally transformative approaches to hiring, policies, training, investigations, discipline, and more.
