BLB&G Announces Formation of Beyond #MeToo: A Working Group on Corporate Governance, Compliance, and Risk
January 28, 2020
Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann is proud to announce the formation of Beyond #MeToo: A Working Group on Corporate Governance, Compliance, and Risk.
This law and research 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.
Bringing together experts on governance, workplace misconduct, corporate compliance, litigation, diversity, investigative journalism, communications, and human behavior, Beyond #MeToo seeks to provide a neutral forum for candid discussion, practical discourse, and legal and professional scholarship in developing the next generation of policy prescriptions and best practices related to these complicated issues.
The group meets monthly and is hosting a series of three roundtable discussions on issues relating to workplace harassment and misconduct over the course of 2020, with the first discussion hosted by BLB&G, followed by discussions at New York University School of Law and BakerHostetler.
“I’ve seen first-hand how powerful the right corporate governance structure can be in dealing with workplace harassment. Boards can no longer afford to avoid taking ownership of the moral and legal culture at the corporation. This collaboration with peers from across industries has already been incredibly valuable, and I know that our work together will have an impact,” says founding member Rebecca Boon, Partner at BLB&G.
Founding members of the group are pictured below.
