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

“I would not have made it this far without Shine’s support. Shine helped me when I hit bottom and there was no hope, then supported me with everything, before and after the birth of my son. You gave me the strength to stand on my feet and look forward when I was miserable and suicidal. I have my life and freedom back as I have a new warm and safe place and my ex-partner is in prison. Thank you for saving my life and my son’s life!!” a Shine client
