A Simple Way to Help Address Sexual Harassment in the Legal Profession
Women Lawyers On Guard Inc., a non-profit national network of women and men who advocate and work for equality and justice (www.womenlawyersonguard.org), is working to address sexual harassment in the legal profession.
WLG is conducting a national Survey on Sexual Misconduct in the Legal Profession (www.womenlawyersonguard.org/survey/) to better understand the scope of this problem in the legal profession. WLG seeks to gather the experiences and perspectives of women and men throughout the legal profession (e.g., law firm, in-house, government, non-profit, law schools, associations, judiciary, etc.).
Please TAKE THE SURVEY (www.womenlawyersonguard.org/survey/) and pass it on to your network.
