Real World Implications of #MeToo – Transforming the Legal Ecosystem Series – Part V

Hosted by FiscalNote, Her Justice, Thomson Reuters and Shearman & Sterling LLP
Register Now – Closed Door Working Session

Reaction to our four 2018 #MeToo discussions was overwhelmingly positive, so we wanted to invite you to
our next roundtable discussion on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, at Shearman & Sterling. The discussion will
focus on the unique role lawyers play in the increasingly stormy waters surrounding sexual abuse and other
corporate misconduct.

C-Suite executives and Boards are struggling with how to contend with 24/7 media coverage, public outrage
and evolving corporate cultures. Much of the media focus has, understandably, been on the most notorious
offenders and high-profile celebrities. But lawyers, not CEOs, are on the front lines of crafting settlement and
severance agreements. What should in-house and outside counsel do to address the rapidly changing
demands associated with #MeToo and related movements?

On February 5th, we will again gather an intimate group (35 to 40) of your senior peers and subject-matter
and industry experts to examine the very real, and often overlooked, legal ecosystem. This off-the-record
conversation will cover:

• The impact of the new world order on ethics and corporate culture
• How lawyers need to adapt to high profile legal, operational and reputational challenges
• How heightened public and government scrutiny has changed the role of lawyers
• How public interest organizations and pro bono providers are helping give a voice to women and other
victims
• How organizations can move from crisis to control, and from reaction to prevention
• How corporate social responsibility, inclusion and diversity organizations are effecting change
