Join us for a fireside chat with Robbie Kaplan, leading advocate for women’s issues and gender equality, as well as a powerhouse corporate litigator. Robbie is co-founder of the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund, providing legal support to those who experience sexual harassment, abuse or related retaliation in the workplace. Robbie successfully argued the landmark marriage equality case, U.S. v. Windsor, in the U.S. Supreme Court, and is the author of Then Comes Marriage: United States v. Windsor and the Defeat of DOMA. Elaine Mandelbaum, Managing Director and General Counsel, Litigation and Regulatory Enforcement, Citi Institutional Clients Group, will lead the discussion of Robbie’s groundbreaking work and cases.
