One Is Too Many: Handling Harassment at Work. Panel Discussion 22 January 2018

Harassment at work happens more often than it is addressed. Whether or not sexual by nature, it is as real as it is distressing.

#MeToo is a hashtag that went viral on social media in October 2017, as men and women all over the world chimed in to share personal stories of undergoing harassment, following sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein. While the Weinstein debacle was largely focused on sexual harassment, #MeToo applies in many other contexts.

In this event, we explore what workplace harassment looks like in Asia, its many facets, and how cultural perspectives of this vastly diverse region might make addressing certain cases difficult. Lastly, we will be sharing practical tactics to navigate the situation when one is witnessing or faced with workplace harassment.

Do join us as we hear from subject experts in this delicate topic; including a human resource professional and law practitioners hailing from AWARE, Bird & Bird ATMD and Uber. Let’s learn what we can do to respond – in turn reinforcing a safe and conducive work environment for all. Please note that this discussion is off the record.
