Thursday 19 April, The Law Society, London

As other industries and professions have begun to shed light on the power structures, which result in abuse, harassment, and bullying of many sorts, the IBAHRI will explore whether these abuses of power are also taking place in the legal workplace. Considering issues of gender, race, sexuality and beyond, the session will consider how ingrained these issues are, what can be done to bring these issues to light and how they should be combatted to ensure that the legal workplace is diverse, fair and allows everyone to thrive.
