The IBA subsequently began a global engagement campaign to raise awareness about these issues and encourage action to address them. At this seminar Kieran Pender, Us Too? author and senior legal advisor with the IBA’s Legal Policy & Research Unit, will outline the report’s troubling findings and its recommendations for positive change in both individual legal workplaces and across the profession as a whole. Kieran’s presentation will be followed by an update from the NZLS on culture and wellbeing in the legal community.
