Judge Lawrence F. Stengel (Ret.) presented at the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s 26th Annual Conference on May 15, 2019. He participated as a panel member during the “Hostile Work Environments and Sexual Harassment” seminar, a CLE offered as a portion of the Commission on Women in the Profession programming.
This panel discussion covered sexual harassment in the workplace, the impact of the #MeToo movement on plaintiffs and defendants and what to expect in the future. Panelists specifically discussed the effect on corporations, lawyers and law firms.
Members of the audience learned more about the court’s response to the movement, including the Third Circuit’s Workplace Fairness Task Force, the reports of harassment from the Ninth Circuit and the repercussions of the Kavanaugh accusations and the Supreme Court’s response.
“This is a very important and timely issue. I was honored to participate on a panel at this conference with such accomplished women in the profession to discuss such a crucial topic.” said Hon. Lawrence F. Stengel (Ret.)
Stengel was accompanied by Stephanie Gantman Kaplan, Sarah E. Pontoski and Shelley R. Smith, attorneys from the Greater Philadelphia Area. The panel was moderated by attorney Sharon R. López.
