Event Details

While the workplace has changed beyond recognition in 2020 due to COVID, toxic environments and cultural bias are alive and kicking and we explore these topics in more detail at the next Women in PR (WPR) event.

A panel of revered industry professionals, chaired by Anna Geffert, WPR and Founder of Hera Communication Strategies, will come together to discuss some of the most emotive issues at play in both agency and in-house settings. Racism, sexism, ageism, cliques, favouritism, nepotism and social class bias are likely to make an appearance on the day, together with the perceived lack of allyship in the industry.

The event will also see the launch of a WPR survey, with Opinium, intended to get under the skin of toxic workplaces and behaviours.

The panel on 12 November includes:

Elizabeth Bananuka, Founder of BME PR Pros and Blueprinted

Ali Hanan – Founder and CEO of Creative Equals

Vivian Leinster, Arqiva, Chief People Officer

Hayley Lewis, Organisational behaviour expert and founder and director of Halo psychology

Adrian Walcott, Managing Director Brands with Values and Founder of BAME2020
