Lawyers Club of San Diego – Sexual Harassment Task Force

Hei-ock Kim


The Sexual Harassment Task Force was created to explore explore issues surrounding sexual harassment in the legal community and to create solutions to help prevent women from leaving the practice of law due to sexual harassment in the workplace.

We are working with City Council President Pro Tem Barbara Bry on the Workplace Equity Initiative, exploring the topic of workplace equity challenges and to develop a code of conduct for San Diego employers.

The Sexual Harassment Task Force has developed toolkits for the Workplace Equity Initiative for use by employees and employers in the legal community and in other industries:

Employee Toolkit:

Know Your Rights: Guidelines & Resources for Sexual Harassment Victims

Employer Toolkit:

Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: Resources for Employers
