How can the #metoo movement transform workplaces and the labour movement?

Join the IFPTE Women’s Solidarity Network for our 4th installment of our Women & Unions International Conference Call Series. The #metoo movement has created space and given courage to women to speak out about sexual harassment and abuse. This conference call presentation will feature Molly McCracken, Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives Manitoba, who will give some background on this growing movement and its implications for workplaces. Fighting discrimination means creating more welcoming and safer spaces, which can only strengthen the labour movement and booster worker’s rights. Unions, including IFPTE Locals, are taking up this charge in various ways, such as education and opportunities to mentor those under-represented in leadership roles. Sign up for the conference call here to learn more about this all important conversation!
