Panel discussion: creating safer working environments and supportive professional intersectional cultures in the wake of #MeToo.
About this Event
Survivors’ Network are proud to be teaming up with Sister Society for a special event this November to mark our 29th birthday.
Our wonderful panel of women will be discussing their lived experiences in the workplace, the impact of sexual harassment or fear of sexual harassment in their working lives and how we as women can support each other going forward to create safer working environments and supportive professional intersectional cultures in the wake of #MeToo.
Survivors’ Network support survivors of sexual abuse and violence and are the rape crisis centre for Sussex. Last year they created the #OverToYou Kitemark for local businesses and organisations to demonstrate the active work they are undertaking to challenge sexual harassment and violence in the workplace. The Survivors’ Network team run training for staff, managers and HR professionals to aid them in qualifying for this Kitemark. They will be offering a two hour taster training session before the panel at a special reduced rate.
List of panellists coming soon.
We have a number of pay-as-you-can tickets for people on low incomes. Please remember this is a charity event so we ask that everyone respects these cheaper tickets and only purchases them if applicable.
Anyone is welcome to come to this event (i.e men are welcome too). As with all Sister Society events this event is a safe space for self-identifying women and non-binary people of all ethnicities, ages and orientations.
This event will be held in the Mercury Meeting Room on the first floor at My Hotel, Brighton.
This venue is accessible with flat ground floor entry from the street to the building and lifts up to the meeting space. There is a wheelchair-accessible toilet on site accessible via the lift.
We hope to see lots of your lovely faces there for what will be a thought-provoking and affirming discussion.
