Workplace Sexual Harassment - Tearing Down Gender Barriers with Kelly Armstrong - 10-11 A.M. | Wednesday, May 16th:

Sexual harassment survivors – women and men – need to know how to safely speak up, and know that their raised voices can help tear down systemic barriers to women’s advancement. 

California is a leader in sexual harassment protection for employees and provides guidance for progressive sexual harassment policies and procedures. New regulations enacted in 2017 include actual legal requirements for creating a confidential complaint process, timely response, impartial and timely investigations by qualified personnel, documentation and tracking for reasonable progress, options for remedial actions and resolutions and timely closure.

In this webinar, attorney Kelly Armstrong will address how to identify sexual harassment, your legal rights and what to do if it happens to you. Register for this webinar HERE

Below are the questions we encourage you to share with your colleagues to discuss in association with the webinar.

  1.  From Kelly's presentation, what surprised you most regarding sexual harassment and your rights? 
  2. Is there anything you’ll be more aware of going forward?
  3. What could your employer do to make you and other women feel more comfortable coming forward regarding sexual harassment at work?  
  4. Have any of you ever experienced or know of anyone else who has experienced sexual harassment at work and have an opinion about how the employer handled it?
  5. What did you learn today that could help an employer handle a sexual harassment complaint in a better way?

Creating the Brand Narrative of Your Business - It All Starts with a Simple Story with Liz Gebhardt 5:30-7:30 P.M.| Tuesday, June 12th| Cadence Design Systems:

A story reflects a company’s DNA. To assume that is mere decoration and an after-fact will place any business at a severe disadvantage. A company’s story is informed by the business plan, product roadmap, customer insights, competitive markets and financial assumptions. It provides a North Star for all decisions. It drives attention and understanding, differentiation, emotional response and action. It builds the basis for that intangible line item called goodwill.

Can those who are not professional storytellers learn to construct their business story? The answer is ‘Yes.’ This workshop-like session shows them how to start. After all, it all begins with a simple story. What’s yours? Register HERE
