Course Description

This course will provide a different framework to a deeper understanding of sexual harassment in the workplace, how it presents in law firms, its prevalence in the legal industry and the workplace in general, and why that matters.  Understanding sexual harassment as an internalized act of aggression rather than a "mistake" is key to properly validating the experiences of victims. 

This program, led by attorney Maria-Vittoria Carminati, will dissect the social phenomenon of sexual harassment and explore how it affects the legal workplace.  Additionally, the program will explore ways to identify and address the dynamics of sexual harassment, address it when it happens, and prevent it from happening to begin with.  

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify sexual harassment as a societal phenomenon that seeps into the workplace as a part of society, and not just a creature of workplace interactions

  2. Define sexual harassment and recognize it as an act of aggression, prone to recidivism and to escalation

  3. Explore ways that supervising and managing attorneys in law firms can identify and address sexual harassment dynamics

  4. Discuss methods to address sexual harassment when it happens and in order to prevent it from happening in the first place
