How the #MeToo and Pay Equity Movements Impact Higher Education – And What To Do About It Now

The calls to action spurred on by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are shining a spotlight on how employers handle gender equality in the workplace., as she addresses how the increased focus on sexual harassment and pay equity claims is impacting higher education institutions.
Colleges and universities should audit their practices now to ensure they are well positioned to identify, address and, if need be, defend against sexual harassment allegations. This session will review current trends in developing robust anti-harassment and anti-retaliation policies, effectively distributing them through the organization, training on their use and implications, and proactively understanding and addressing legal risk areas.
