Perrin Conferences

WAYNE, PA — Perrin Conferences, the leading national provider of joint plaintiff/defendant litigation conferences, is hosting its annual Sexual Abuse Litigation and Coverage Conference on Thursday, October 5, 2023 at the New York City Bar Association.

Perrin Conferences announced that Gretchen Carlson, an internationally recognized advocate for women’s rights, will join the conference and speak on the session, “NDA’s: Permission to Victimize.” Her bold actions against Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes helped pave the way for the global #MeToo movement. A former CBS News and Fox News journalist, author, TED talk alum, and champion for workplace equality, Carlson was named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World”. She’s the co-founder of the non-profit Lift Our Voices which works to end silencing mechanisms in the workplace that keep toxic issues secret and the author of the New York Times bestseller “Be Fierce” and “Getting Real.”

This conference is an opportunity to network with over 50 organizations including U.S. Healthcare, The RiverStone Group, Compre Group, and Nonprofits Insurance Alliance. Join us to engage with thought leaders and gain valuable insights. A diverse lineup of leading attorneys, insurance carriers, abuse experts, and other industry professionals will come together in this unique space to discuss a wide range of topics including:
