From ousted CEOs to nixed political campaigns due to bad behavior, some days it seems like professionalism and fairness were never the concerns of any industry – especially dealings between men and women in the workforce. You've seen the headlines, you've heard the commentators, but maybe you aren't sure what to do – especially when every word or gesture now feels like a potential minefield of risk.
 
The truth is you CAN make a difference in the working world, no matter your role or rank, on issues of inappropriate behavior and harassment. You will leave this program with a toolkit of concrete actions, resources, and strategies, big and small, for fostering professionalism in the legal community proactively, and for responding appropriately when it appears to be lacking. Using the recent experiences of fellow members of the ACBA, the panelists will demonstrate what works – and what doesn't – when addressing inappropriate conduct in the office, courtroom, or bar association events. The program will explain not only how to comply with the ethical requirements for professionalism, but why doing so is simply good business, improving retention rates, productivity, and even your bottom line.
