EBWN invites you to join us for the monthly networking lunch and to hear the keynote speaker Spencer C. Young on Wednesday, February 7th from 11:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.,Grandview Pavilion, 300 Island Drive, Alameda.
Fact: nearly half of all women in the workforce have been sexually harassed.
We all know what it feels like when a line is crossed, but do we know what to do? And when? Despite laws and years of job place training the problem still exists. Many women have felt that the only choice was silence in order to keep their job. After the recent period of speaking out it feels like we are in new territory. Time to learn how to navigate.
EBWN has invited a local attorney advocate to clarify the legal side of the equation, we also invite our sisters to come and give witness. Know your rights and speak out!

The majority of his practice is dedicated to representing employees in discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, whistleblower and wage and hour claims.
