The Howard Tech Council is presenting this event.

The #metoo movement has changed the way employees communicate, how executive leadership teams should lead; how training should be implemented and how the courts are responding to such claims.

Legally, the momentum created by the #metoo movement is leading into other employment claims that deal with pay equity issues, recruitment, performance, retention and promotion issues. This movement is going far beyond the simple mistreatment of an employee. Employment litigation is expensive, disruptive, and distracting, and emerging businesses should implement appropriate steps, policies and agreements from the outset.

The EEOC reports that hits on the sexual harassment page of their website more than doubled this past year. This increased focus has also led to a spike in the number of employment practices liability cases; this is not a situation that employers can ignore.

Human Resources’ role in any organization is multi-faceted, with one of those being the management of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) initiatives. Having a comprehensive D&I initiative involves ensuring the organizations have the proper policies, practices, organizational structure and training in place. It is imperative that executives, regardless of organization size or industry, have their Human Resources professional at the executive table to help them navigate the complexities and compliance related to these initiatives.
