Banter, Harassment and Bullying Investigations

September 20 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Have you seen complex investigations go wrong? Do you want to make sure your organisation safely addresses Bullying and Harassment cases? Does the phrase “it’s just banter” cause you to shudder? For investigators dealing with Bullying and Harassment cases, this terminology is all too common.

Join us as we discuss the nuances of bullying and harassment investigations. We will cover current trends, debunk myths, and review how the harm-centred approach can be adopted to make your investigations safer for everyone.

Participants will analyse a closed case, identifying what went well and what fell short. We will explore how to carry out safe investigations from disclosure to closure, and look at how organisations can integrate investigation insights to drive cultural change and promote accountability.
