Inclusionist Interactions: She is your colleague. Let’s make sure she is safe.
From your PC, laptop or phone - Via ZOOM
Come and join other Men for Inclusion 'Inclusionists' for our bi-weekly virtual chat and discussion. We are welcoming members and non-members to join. For this week’s Inclusionist Interactions series we will be discussing:
Safety is a big deal in many ways: Physical safety from harassment or assault. Psychological safety to challenge things that get in the way of equality of opportunity and your feeling of belonging at work. Interventions when you fear a colleague is a victim of domestic violence.
One of the main hopes in building inclusive cultures at work is to support the feeling of safety for members of under-represented groups. This isn’t only an issue for women.
She is your colleague. Let’s make sure she is safe:
- After an evening work event or when working late
- When out with clients
- In the office
- When travelling on business
Suggestions include ensuring:
- More than one person attends client meetings that happen outside work
- Female colleagues are not asked to deliver documents to clients in bars and clubs
- Women stay in hotels near the office or conference they are travelling for work (even if this affects the travel budget)
And in many other scenarios our female colleagues may feel vulnerable and unsafe. How can you ensure their safety? Join us to continue the conversation.
