One Is Too Many – Handling Harassment at Work

Harassment at work happens more often than it is addressed. When one is faced with harassment, rhetorical questions suddenly seem impossible to answer: Should I speak up? To whom? How will I be viewed? What are the repercussions to my career?

#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 misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein. While the Weinstein debacle was largely focused on sexual harassment, #MeToo applies in many other contexts such as workplace bullying, manipulative behaviour, abusive language, threats and more. It is also crucial to acknowledge that harassment is not gender-specific, and women and men alike could be victims as well as perpetrators.

In this event, we explore what workplace harassment looks like in Asia, 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 faces workplace harassment.

Do join us as we hear from subject experts on this delicate topic, with representatives from AWARE, Bird & Bird and Uber. Let's equip ourselves and 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, and experiences shared during this event should be kept private and confidential.
