Investigating Sexual Misconduct Workshop Round Up

On Friday, 14th October 2022 we held the first part of our Investigating Sexual Misconduct workshop, hosted by Ropes & Gray at their London offices.

Our expert speakers included:

Amanda Raad, Ropes & Gray

Ruby Moshenska, safeguarding consultant

Sharon Tan, Mishcon de Reya

Basha Galvin, ACi

Delegates discussed how corporate investigators can manage complainants, witnesses and employees accused of wrongdoing in a culturally sensitive way, including duty of care to all parties concerned. There was a focus on how to respond to complex sexual misconduct allegations using trauma-informed approaches as part of a robust response, the role bias can play in an investigation, employment law implications and how sexual misconduct investigations link to wider organisation culture discussions.

Feedback from attendees has been fantastic. Here are just a few comments we received:

“A very helpful and thoughtful review of trauma informed approaches.”

“A rarely discussed topic.”

“Practical tips on interviews with complainants/Subject of Concern.”

Thank you to our expert panel speakers and our host, Amanda Raad, and the rest of the Ropes & Gray team. We look forward to our part two of this workshop coming to you in 2023.
