The #MeToo movement is an example of how cultural, and even legal, changes can be initiated and promoted by social media. This workshop considers the changing legal and ethical ramifications of sexual harassment in the wake of this movement. Financial and accounting professionals need to be aware of these changes and how they may be expected to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
