Sexual Harassment Workshop
NZ Broadcasting School TV Studio, cnr Madras and Southwark St, Christchurch Central
6pm Drinks - Start at 6.30pm

As a precursor to future workshops SWAG will be organising, WIFT is pleased to present this workshop to be held in Christchurch on 08th November.

We hosted this workshop in Auckland and we received more positive engaged feedback than from any of the others we have run. The reaction from the attendees was that they found it extremely enlightening and sobering. The workshop is not sector specific but it is a practical workshop with advice and information that can have an immediate effect on you and the safety of others around you.

Presented by Debbi Tohill, Executive Director of RPE (Rape Prevention Education) which delivers education and health promotion / prevention programmes nationally, this will be a two-hour intensive covering the basics:

  • Exactly what is sexual harassment?
  • The continuum to sexual violence
  • Keeping yourself safe
  • Creating a safe environment
  • Knowing your rights
  • Reporting
  • Making your own decisions

If you are an employer, employee or a contractor you need to come to this workshop.  The SWAG survey results have two out of three respondents either experiencing or witnessing sexual harassment.  We can't ignore it.

Everyone is welcome at this workshop (yes, that includes men). Please spread the word.

WHERE: NZ Broadcasting School, 150 Madras St, Christchurch Central

WHEN:  Thursday 8th November

Time:  6pm for a 6.30pm sharp start
