Still Broken - Lessons from a Nationwide Study of Sexual Harassment in the Legal Profession

With the #MeToo Movement, sexual harassment in the workplace has exploded into societal consciousness with a force not felt in 25 years. We've heard a lot about the entertainment industry, and other non-legal settings. But what about the legal profession? Women Lawyers on Guard deployed a nationwide survey of the legal profession because it had heard many sub-rosa stories of current sexual harassment and serious misconduct. But others thought it was a problem whose time had come and gone for legal workplaces. Who was right?  Participate in this session and find out (Hint: it hasn’t gone away). Hear about some extremely interesting findings and creative ways to address this scourge in the profession.

Making Fashion Sustainable - Lessons Learned From Soil to Shirt

As awareness and concern about climate change have become more widespread, sustainability has become an increasingly important factor in the decision-making of consumers, investors, and policymakers. The fashion industry is no exception and, as the world’s third-largest manufacturing sector after the automobile and technology industries, it has a considerable environmental footprint - presenting challenges and opportunities for industry thought leaders to meet head-on. In our panel, we will speak with experts along the supply chain to explore how their sustainability efforts are realized, what challenges they face, and how they measure their progress - from field to fiber to fashion. Panelists will specifically address the following:

•  Regenerative agriculture and approaching sustainable textile production (literally) from the ground up;  

•  Using and defining sustainability standards for textiles and apparel;  

•  Establishing reliable metrics for monitoring and sustainability reporting;  

•  Balancing product safety risk and regulatory requirements against sustainable practices; and  

•  Sustainability leadership from the brand perspective.
