March 5, 2018
Arnold & Porter Seminar, Washington, DC
By Bridget M. Weiss Emily Martin

Both as operating entities and as funders, nonprofit organizations are adjusting to the stark reality that sexual harassment is still alive and well in the American workplace—and that stakeholders are not willing to look the other way. This is a candid discussion about the new landscape and the risks and opportunities for organizations in addressing problems of discrimination and harassment.

Topics

  • Current and projected trends in the legal and organizational treatment of sexual harassment issues.
  • Special problems of sex discrimination and sexual harassment in the nonprofit sector.
  • Best practices for responding to allegations of harassment—from senior management down to the staff level.
  • The new visibility of funders in addressing issues of harassment and discrimination.
