1:00pm — 2:30pm
Let’s support an inclusive ad community in Milwaukee.
Harassment is a sensitive and real issue, and we’re committed to helping address this problem in our community. Members of our club want to know how we can come together to make the Milwaukee ad community safe and inclusive for all.
With that in mind, we’re setting up conversations to share perspectives, and, most of all, connect as a group to talk about the issue we face.
It’s important that a professional with experience and an equitable outlook guides our conversations. That’s why we invited Sarah Platt, an employment attorney from Ogletree Deakins, to provide a short presentation on best practices for employers and employees around harassment in the workplace on Tuesday, June 12. She’ll also facilitate our discussions, so we encourage you to bring questions and benefit from her knowledge.
Please join us to further the conversations and find solutions. We are offering two sessions during the day on Tuesday, June 12th so they are more accessible to our members. You can pick from either 1pm or 5:30pm.
