#MeToo - A Hypothetical Journey

The #MeToo campaign has promoted a global call for an end to workplace, community and in-home sexual harassment and violenceIt followed soon after the public revelations of sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein in 2017 and has targeted many other high profile figures from a range of industries and professions.

As part of 2018 Law Week and in collaboration with the JCU College of Business, Law and Governance, JCU College of Arts, Society and Education and The Cairns Institute, local Cairns Magistrate Sandra Pearson and Special Counsel of Maurice Blackburn Lawyers and JCU Alumnus Noami de Costa will compare #MeToo - A Hypothertical Journey, a 'Geoffrey Robertson style' discussion with an eminent panel of Cairns cross-sectoral representatives to explore the issues the #MeToo campaign has raised. The event will focus on how to encourage behaviour that promotes good relationships and improves gender parity.

When: 15 May 2018, 5:30pm
Where: Room D3.054, Building D3 - The Cairns Institute, Cairns Campus
