#MeToo – Easing tensions at work

Many industries are figuring out how to best deal with the aftermath of the #MeToo movement. The fallouts have been eye opening and paralyzing at the same time. Now what? How do we move forward and manage gender politics in the workplace? On one hand companies are putting more focus on structural and policy changes to ensure inclusivity, diversity and equality. On the other hand, many employees don’t know what to do while they wait for clarity to trickle down to their level.
For our May 2nd event, we want to tease out common issues and provide an open space to talk about current tensions that have arisen from #MeToo. The end goal is to begin to understand how people can work comfortably and openly with each other – easing the tension we all currently face. Our diverse panel will aim to provide a practical and actionable day-to-day perspective rather than focusing on policy changes.
This is an important discussion and is open to every gender. So when you book your spot through Eventbrite, consider securing a second spot and bring a friend of another gender to join the conversation. It’s a difficult one, but the more people involved, the more we will benefit from awareness and understanding.
To get things started, we are inviting you to email your question for our panel to email@example.com.
