How to deal with sexism and harassment in the workplace
Workshop – learn how to deal with sexism and harassment in the workplace
Sexism and harassment in the workplace is a growing concern especially with a move towards holding organisations and third parties accountable. It’s important that we all make workplaces secure and safe and develop an awareness around the topic.
Men and women welcomed at this live workshop
80% of women experience sexism in the workplace. 23% experience direct sexual harassment. One of the reasons this prevails because it has been normalized into our culture. Gender bias and behaviour around gender based expectations are so embedded into our daily professional lives that we are sometimes unaware that it is even going on and we remain oblivious. If we are aware research shows that women are reluctant to come forward. They are even more reluctant to intervene to support other women. This is why support from male colleagues or allies is critical.
Who should attend
The impact of social media means that all employers must demonstrate that their workplaces are safe and secure to protect their employer brand. But despite having formal policies in place sexism and sexual harassment goes on. If you witness it personally maybe you don’t know how to go about dealing with it. Maybe you are the target.
