The IBA’s response to the situation in Ukraine
30 Oct - 4 Nov 2022
Sunset Vista Ballroom A, Level 4
Tuesday 1 November (0800 - 0915)
Claims filed against companies that are alleged, or whose boards are alleged, to have permitted an atmosphere in which sexual misconduct or harassment was tolerated or to have misrepresented the measures the companies had taken to prevent or respond to misconduct, are on the rise.
Also in the legal world, in our own working environment, we all have a responsibility to create a culture where bullying, harassment and discrimination doesn’t happen, and challenging it or reporting it if we see it happening. These matters can, from different positions, be difficult to deal with. Increasing self-awareness about the signs and symptoms and a pro-active approach, are essential.
In roundtable discussions, this session explores strategies and shares experiences of how different jurisdictions are approaching this issue. It is open to all; litigators of all genders are warmly invited to participate in the debate.
