Crafting Respectful Live Event Workplaces

To thrive and do our best work, we all need respectful and civil environments that are free of harassment, bullying and discrimination. While occupational health and safety legislation gives a framework for compliance, some workplaces become poisoned despite their policies. This panel will bring together perspectives from the festival, music, performing arts, film and television industries to discuss how we can move forward to create healthy and productive workplaces.
