Sexual Harassment Training in the #MeToo Era

As part of ADAMS+CROW LAW FIRM’s employment law practice, Sam Adams and Alana De Young routinely train both employees and managers on various workplace issues including harassment, discrimination and retaliation. Recently, Sam and Alana have provided several trainings on Sexual Harassment in the #MeToo Era.

Sam Adams first presented on this important topic at the Women’s Bar Association and State Bar Diversity CLE in April 2018 with Ms. Pamelya Herndon, the Executive Director of the Southwest Women’s Law Center. Sam and Pamelya were asked to present again on #MeToo sexual harassment training issues as part of the New Mexico State Bar Annual Meeting on August 10, 2018. Alana De Young was pleased to join Sam to present on the #MeToo movement’s impact on sexual harassment training at the 2018 Employment and Labor Institute on October 5, 2018, a CLE for employment law practitioners throughout New Mexico.

Please contact ADAMS+CROW LAW FIRM to learn more and schedule workplace trainings with Sam and Alana on sexual harassment, discrimination, and other workplace issues for employers of all sizes.
