SURVEY ABOUT SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

South Carolina Legal Professionals Invited to Participate

In National Survey about Sexual Misconduct

 Women Lawyers On Guard Inc. (WLG), a non-profit network of women and men who advocate and work for equality and justice, is conducting a national Survey on Sexual Misconduct in the Legal Profession. WLG is looking for responses from women and men throughout the legal profession (e.g., law firm, in-house, government, non-profit, law schools, associations, judiciary, etc.). The survey, which can be found at www.womenlawyersonguard.org/survey/, is hosted on a secure site to keep responses completely anonymous and confidential, and does not ask for, nor capture, employer names, or other identifying specifics. Please share the survey with those in your law firms, legal offices, and organizations.

WLG will share the resulting report with SCWLA and others in the hope that employers, individuals, and organizations will use the results of the survey to inform their continued efforts to address sexual harassment and misconduct.

More information about WLG may be found online at www.womenlawyersonguard.org.
