Event description

Description

Have you ever experienced harassment or bullying on the job, or witnessed a situation that might have been workplace harassment?

Workplace harassment is an issue which affects many people in the workplace. Left unchecked, it can have long-term damaging effects on one's career, eroding one's reputation, sense of confidence and well-being, as well as destroying the culture and productivity in a workplace. Whether a victim or an observer of harassment, many people do not report it for fear of repercussions, and because of inadequate understanding of ways to deal with the issue. So, we're bringing together a panel of professionals who deal with workplace issues, to share their expertise on what you can do if you experience or observe harassment at work.

Due to the potentially sensitive and highly personal nature of this topic, we will not have an event photographer, and we request that our attendees also respect each others' privacy. There will be a specially designated area where photos can be taken with the panelists and Lean In Canada team.

Joining us on the panel will be:
