LSJ Speaker Series

Sexual Harassment

Wednesday  28 November 2018

Have you experienced or witnessed sexual harassment in the work place? If so, you're not alone

The #MeToo movement has given women a platform to speak out and share their stories of victimisation with studies conducted by the International Bar Association and Human Rights Commission finding that lawyers are not immune to, or innocent of, sexual harassment.

Join us for an in-depth investigation into the prevalence of sexual harassment in the legal profession at our second LSJ Speaker Series.  Meet some inspirational guests who share their experiences and advice on dealing with work place sexual harassment and, in a casual setting over breakfast, equip yourself with the knowledge and tools to help put a stop to this scourge on our industry.
