Assisting Judges and Court Professionals to Respond to Sexual Harassment and Abuse in the Court as a Workplace

The National Association for Court Management (NACM) announces the release of resources and curricula to assist judges and court professionals to respond to sexual and gender harassment and abuse in the courts as a workplace.  The State Justice Institute (SJI) funded NACM to implement their proposed Courts in the Era of #WeToo curriculum project, which was collaboratively designed and proposed by NACM, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), the National Association of Women Judges (NAWJ), and Futures Without Violence. 

The shared vision of the partners was to develop and deliver nationally significant educational programs and guidance focused on sexual harassment and assault, including actions targeted against LGBTQ+ individuals in the courts, and to provide distance learning opportunities to broaden the opportunities for education on this topic to judges, court managers, administrators, and other court professionals. 

With critical guidance from our Advisory Committee made up of judges and court leaders from around the country, the partners developed a curriculum informed by the experience of judges and court managers, built around proven adult-learning principles, and responsive to current issues and real leadership challenges.  It is intended to be taught by a teaching team (ideally consisting of at least one judge and one court administrator) in three separate, 3-hour modules.
