Happy November! As the holidays approach, we hope you enjoy time with your family and friends. We are excited to share with you our company highlights from the past few months.

Culturupt has continued to serve as a critical third-party neutral investigator for sensitive sexual harassment and discrimination investigations involving high-profile executives at public companies, and start-ups. We have also been hired to provide one on one training or coaching for individuals following an investigation. On the training side, Culturupt recently finished several trainings that were well received. Finally, in line with Culturupt’s mission of giving back, Culturupt dedicated a week to volunteering in Texas with the Texas RioGrande Legal Aid Project by assisting individuals prepare for their credible fear interview with an Asylum Officer, see below for more info.
