About: 

Sexual harassment is a global problem. It is increasingly affecting the well-being of employees and employers worldwide.

How do we use the tools of comparative law to address the problem of sexual harassment? In May 2019, legal scholars, practitioner-experts and business professionals from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America, will gather at Berkeley Law to explore approaches and solutions with California lawyers, managers, and HR professionals.

It’s been over a year since revelations of widespread sexual harassment by powerful men in journalism, entertainment, politics, and law — and the #MeToo hashtag — rocked the world, as women shared their common experiences of sexual harassment.  This conference will examine the systemic issues that permit harassment and explore proposed creative solutions developed across the globe.

Women across the globe were tweeting #MeToo—it’s time for solutions.
