Taking the Lead: Responding to Harassment in the Workplace

As you know, the #MeToo movement has generated a lot of attention on sexual harassment in the workplace.  In addition, some high-profile disclosures regarding judges sexually harassing subordinates have increased attention to sexual harassment within organizations that support the educational needs of judges. Many of us have reviewed, revised, or revamped sexual harassment training efforts for judges and court staff.  The conference in Austin features a session about what works and what does not work in terms of sexual harassment training.  At the end of the day, none of us want to make the problem worse; we are trying to do what we can to make it better.

This webinar continues along the path of how to do sexual harassment training in a way that helps solve the problem.  In this session, we will look at the intersection of race and sex, considering how training efforts may be missing some of the critical elements to make them effective.

Join our faculty, Dr. Anthony Simones, Director of Citizenship Education, Missouri Bar (moderator), Kimberly Carson, Judicial Education Specialist for the Iowa AOC, and Jennifer Juhler, Director of Education and Training for the Iowa AOC.  Dr. Simones has graciously agreed to moderate a discussion of these issues with Kim and Jennifer who have considerable experience training on fairness issues and who spend a significant amount of time talking with each other about fairness issues in general, race and sex specifically.
