Kalpana Kotagal, a Partner in Cohen Milstein’s Civil Rights & Employment Law practice, will be speaking at the American Constitution Society’s 2018 National Convention, June 7-9, 2018, at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C.

The panel discussion, “#Metoo, Ustoo. Can Lawyers Take the Lead?” will address the impact of the viral #MeToo campaign, which has revealed the pervasiveness of sexual assault, harassment, and misconduct on campuses, in the media, and in every workplace, including the legal profession.

Panelists will reflect on how the movement has empowered women and others vulnerable to this type of abuse to come forward and share their stories. The panel will also discuss concerns about visibility and retaliation, how the legal profession can take a leadership role in enacting change, and the challenges that remain.
