WLA Spring Conference – #MeToo: Sexual Harassment, Assault, & Inequality in the Workplace

April 4, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

The Harvard Women’s Law Association presents its 12th Annual Spring Conference, “Why We March: Women’s Stories of Past, Present, and Future.”

 In October 2017, the hashtag #MeToo was used by thousands of individuals across the globe to demonstrate the scale and prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace, resulting in the #MeToo Movement. Join us on Wednesday, April 4th from 4:30PM – 6:00PM in Milstein West A for a panel discussion entitled “#MeToo: Sexual Harassment, Assault, & Inequality in the Workplace” to learn more about this growing movement.

 The panel will cover topics such as sexual misconduct in the workplace, intersectional issues surrounding the Me Too movement, the arc and culture of sexual violence beyond the workplace, the role of lawyers and the legal system, and ways to transform awareness of the issues into change.

 Panelists include Roberta Kaplan, Founding Partner of Kaplan & Company and Co-founder of TIME’S UP; Emily Martin, General Counsel of the National Women’s Law Center and a director at the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund; Amanda Nguyen, Founder and President of Rise; and Joanne N. Smith, Founder and Executive Director of Girls for Gender Equity. The panel will be moderated by Amber James, a 2L and member of the Harvard Women’s Law Association.

 Free swag, coffee, and light snacks will be provided!

 Afterwards, please join us for drinks and hors d’oeuvres from 6:00PM – 7:30PM in Milstein West B.
