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

Hosted by FiscalNote, Her Justice, Thomson Reuters and Viacom Inc.

Reaction to our seven 2018-2019 #MeToo discussions was overwhelmingly positive, so we wanted to invite you to our next roundtable discussion on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, at Viacom Inc. 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 October 2nd, 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:

  • How the changing landscape has impacted 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
