Navigating the Post #MeToo World: What This Means for Our Workplace

Creating an Equal Workplace
Herbert Smith Freehills - Melbourne

About The Event

Melbourne CBD | Thursday 29th August | 8:30am - 10:00am

Women are no longer tolerating micro-inequities and micro-aggressions in the workplace, men feel like they are walking on broken glass and countless people complain that they are going home each day thinking “I should have said something”.

Come and explore how the surge in demand to deal with the full spectrum of inappropriate behaviour in the workplace is impacting on organisations and what they are doing about it.
