How To Speak Up At Work

Speaking up at work when you witness insensitive behaviour, bullying or harassment can be challenging. Despite wanting to speak up, fear or the hope someone else will say something can often get the best of us. This fear can also be exacerbated if you are from a traditionally marginalised group or you worry about using the incorrect terminology. It does not have to be this way. This 2-hour workshop will equip you with tools and strategies to help speak up with confidence in support of others and yourself.

Speaking up requires a collective effort; therefore, the workshop is designed for employees at all levels, irrespective of seniority.
