2020 Beecroft Jr. Lecture: Hiding Harassment

When

Mar. 5, 2020, 5:30pm to 7pm

Office/Remote Location

Thomas & Mack Moot Court

Description

Despite highly publicized revelations of sexual harassment in the workplace, egregious discriminatory harassment of all kinds persists. This presentation, by Professor Pat K. Chew, University of Pittsburgh School of Law, explores how we countenance and hide harassment and its perpetrators.  In particular, how do procedures for resolving harassment conflicts, such as mandatory arbitration, keep the problems secret?  Further, what is it about our cultural values and institutional structures that empower harassers and silence their targets?  And finally, what procedural changes will make harassment more visible and perpetrators accountable?
