On October 24, 2023, the Beyond #MeToo Working Group on Corporate Governance, Compliance, and Risk will hold an in-person workshop. Bringing together senior legal minds, business executives, and industry experts for an off-the-record conversation, this event will be held in two parts. The group will first evaluate corporate America’s current state of affairs, considering progress within corporations as well as common challenges and obstacles faced by workshop participants. Following this discussion, the group will consider practical ways in which companies and colleagues can address and anticipate “known knowns” and break down barriers that impede progress. Both featured speakers and the wider audience will be encouraged to engage in meaningful dialogue throughout.

Featured speakers will include Judge Colleen McMahon of the Southern District of New York; Valerie E. Radwaner, Deputy Chair at Paul, Weiss; Tracey Heaton, Chief Legal Officer at Heidrick & Struggles; Lisa M. Fairfax, Presidential Professor and Co-Director of Institute for Law and Economics at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School; David Curran, Co-Chair of the Sustainability & ESG Advisory Practice at Paul, Weiss and Executive Director of the ESG and Law Institute; Liza Velazquez, Partner in the Litigation Department at Paul, Weiss; Rebecca Boon, Partner at Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann; and Brande Stellings, Principal at Vestry Laight.

BLB&G’s Rebecca Boon and Brittney Balser have played an integral role in organizing this high-caliber event, alongside other legal professionals. Rebecca is one of the group’s co-founders and will be addressing attendees regarding the mission of Beyond #MeToo and its impact to date. The Beyond #MeToo Working Group is dedicated to understanding the root causes of workplace harassment, discrimination, and misconduct; tracking and constructively utilizing the insights gained through the #MeToo movement; and helping to create the optimal corporate compliance and management structures that prevent workplace misconduct and abuses of power.
