It is increasingly important for institutional investors engaged in due diligence on investment management firms to also consider possible sexual harassment issues. Not including potential sexual harassment in the scope of due diligence could leave investors exposed to reputational and financial risk.
In addition, if investigative due diligence reveals that investors ignored warning signs, or did not follow appropriate scoping, the collateral damage can cost them other investors, trustees, donors, and careers.
To learn more about identification of potential sexual harassment issues in your due diligence, we encourage you to participate in the IMDDA’s upcoming online workshop. Join us online on June 20, 2018 at 12:00 - 1:00 PM EDT.
There we will address the challenges investors face in investigating potential sexual harassment while conducting due diligence on investment managers. We will discuss proper actions to take, questions to ask, and tools that can be used to uncover sexual harassment issues during the due diligence process, as well as what investors should do if they find evidence of sexual harassment.
How to identify sexual harassment red flags through public records and social media research
How to ask tougher questions -- questions not just about culture, but rather the DNA of a company as it relates to sexual harassment
How to examine managers’ human resources practices
When and how to interview former employees
