12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Bookings closed

Join us on Wednesday June 7 from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM for an online lunch and learn program as University of Oregon Law Professor Liz Tippett shares her insights about harassment training programs, drawing from social science research on decision-making and behavior change.

What can trainings realistically accomplish?  What are some factors to consider in deciding on a training program?  And how can you evaluate whether the training was successful?

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
This presentation has been approved for one (1) Access to Justice CLE credit.


Professor Liz Tippett’s research examines employment practices, consumer decision-making, and the intersection of law and technology.  Her research has been published in the Minnesota Law Review, the Yale Journal of Law and Technology, the Berkeley Journal of Labor and Employment Law, and the American Business Law Journal, among others, with forthcoming work to appear in the Arizona Law Review and Texas Law Review.  She is currently working on a monograph about the history of employment law, under contract with the University of California Press.

Professor Tippett’s writing explores the relationship between anti-harassment law and the broader goal of providing equal employment opportunity.  Her articles have examined the legal implications of the #MeToo movement, the content of harassment trainings, and how employers can improve processes for distributing employment opportunities.  In 2018, Professor Tippett testified before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and its Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace.

Professor Tippett is a co-author of the Fifth Edition of the West Academic textbook, Employment Discrimination & Employment Law: The Field as Practiced, along with Samuel Estreicher & Michael Harper.  Professor Tippett’s previous work examining the Supreme Court’s decision in Dukes v. Wal-Mart was cited in two decisions by the United States Court of Appeals and the Iowa Supreme Court.  In 2018, she received the Michael J. Zimmer Memorial Award for rising scholars in labor and employment law.

Before joining the faculty, Professor Tippett practiced employment law at the Silicon Valley based law firm, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.  Professor Tippett graduated from Harvard Law School in 2006 and Harvard College in 2002.  As a student, she spent several years working for the late Professor Roger Fisher, co-author of ‘Getting to Yes.’
