NZ Law Society Working Group aims to improve response to sexual harassment, bullying, and other inappropriate behaviour

The Working Group is chaired by Dame Silvia Cartwright and members include Shine GM Jane Drumm. The Group was established mid-April following widespread allegations of sexual harassment, bullying and discrimination within the legal profession, combined with a culture of silence and under-reporting of such misconduct.. The Group is inviting people to share their thoughts and ideas as to what changes and improvements can be made by emailing workinggroup@lawsociety.org.nz
