The #MeToo Movement has been a pervasive mainstay in the media of late, and it does not appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. But what does #MeToo mean for women lawyers and the legal industry as a whole?
Women Lawyers Association ACT is hosting a panel discussion with Prue Bindon, Jennifer Wyborn and Simone Ey on 14 March 2018 to unpick the hashtag. The panel discussion will explain the legal framework around sexual harassment and explore what employers and employees in the legal industry can do to address this issue.
