How to Prevent Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Webinar

06/04/2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Humentum and TrustLaw, the global pro bono program of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, invite you to join their webinar series on the #metoo movement and its legal perspectives for nonprofits. The series will raise awareness among non-profits and give them the legal tools they need to prevent discrimination and sexual harassment, and promote equality and pay equity.

What are the legal perspectives of the #MeToo movement? Allegations of sexual harassment and abuse among the non-profit sector have highlighted the importance for organizations to lock in their commitment to prevent discrimination and sexual misconduct, by strengthening for example their governance documents.

The presenter will examine how to lock the organization’s commitment to prevent sexual harassment in its governance documents, HR policies and practices; with a moderated Q&A exchange.
