Joan Eagle and Monica Brennan

Listen in as a duo of experts leads us in a wide-ranging discussion about sexual harassment in the workplace.

Attorney Joan Eagle will address the legal aspects of sexual harassment: including how it is defined under federal, state, and local laws; how sexual harassment is different from sex discrimination; and what remedies are available. Eagle will also give practical advice about how to handle supervisors, coworkers, and just plain jerks.

Monica Brennan is the head of human resources at Bear Construction Company. Brennan will present a view from the trenches based on her experiences in handling reports of harassment, discrimination, and offensive behavior. As a graduate in broadcasting, Brennan is particularly in tune with the AWJ audience.

Recorded Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at the Chopin Theatre.
