Allegations of sexual harassment can arise in any workplace, at any time – and when they do, a poorly executed response can lead to significant liability. Ensuring your organization’s incident response strategy is effective will keep you in control of the situation and minimize the potential harms that can result. Join peers from other organizations and participate in a presenter-led group discussion that will help you navigate incidents as they occur. The session will test your incident response smarts and provide you with practical tips and strategies that you can apply in managing your next incident.

This session is suitable as a stand-alone experience but also acts as a substantive introduction to our tabletop exercise that will take you through a real-life scenario where you can apply what you have learned.
