A series of practical sessions helping us to speak our mind when we know what is right.
7pm - 8pm On Zoom
May 18th: Hostile Work Environment
View a short film produced by a group of work placements under 25 with social impact company, Ethos VO. In this story, Chris is bullied by his boss and 'gaslighted' by a colleague. What could we say to defend him? Can he defend himself? Is it worth it - or should he preserve himself and walk away so someone else can take his place as a victim? A brief, dramatic scenario that throws up questions about how to voice better values within a work culture which has been poisoned by mistrust, dishonesty and power play.
