2021 Past events
We've had a busy year so far! These are a few highlights of our events we organised throughout the first semester.
Speak Up, Speak Out
In April we facilitated a workshop to learn how to 'speak up and speak out' against sexual harassment in the workplace.
We heard from guest speaker, Joy Liddicoat who was one of the members of the New Zealand Law Society Working Group. These members were asked to inquire into and report on the regulatory framework in respect of sexual harassment, bullying, discrimination and other inappropriate workplace behaviour in the legal profession – which will be discussed at the workshop.
We also hd bystander training which was facilitated by Bell Murphy. This showed us what to do in instances where we see or experience sexual assault or harassment in the workplace
In May we held a quiz night at starters bar, this was well attended and a great night! The thinking caps were certainly on! Thank you to Sals Dunedin and Megazone for kindly donating wonderful prizes for the night!
Raffle for Pillars
Over April we ran a raffle fundraiser for Pillars, a charity who provide support services for the children of prisoners. This raffle was generously sponsored by Allpress, Fix & Fogg, the University of Otago Bookstore, BlueFrog, and Iko Iko!
