#MeToo - A Hypothetical Journey


When: 15 May 18, 5:30pm

Where: At James Cook University
Room D3.054, Building D3 - The Cairns Institute, Cairns Campus

Balancing the scales for gender parity and equality

The #MeToo campaign has promoted a global call for an end to workplace, community and in-home sexual harassment and violence.

As part of 2018 Law Week and in collaboration with the JCU College of Business, Law and Governance, JCU College of Arts, Society and Education and The Cairns Institute, local Cairns Magistrate Sandra Pearson and Special Counsel of Maurice Blackburn Lawyers and JCU Alumnus Noami de Costa will compare a 'Geoffrey Robertson style' hypothetical discussion with an eminent panel of Cairns cross sectoral representatives to explore the issues the #MeToo campaign has raised.

The event will focus on how to encourage behaviour that promotes good relationships and improves gender parity.

Among the 8 member panel will be Julie Steers of the Cairns Business Women’s Network, broadcaster David Warner (Star FM), Smithfield State High School Principle Barry Courtney, JCU's Professor Lee Stewart and local Cairns Councilor, Richie Bates.
