The Institute of Public Administration Australia WA is hosting a breakfast seminar on the topic of Women and Workplace Mobbing: An issue for the 21st century, June 16 at the Sheraton Hotel. Workplace mobbing refers to upward bullying of managers and supervisors by employees that is ignored by senior executives. This signals that bullying and abuse will be tolerated, increasing the vulnerability of employees in the workplace. Speaker Dr Jocelynne Scutt is a barrister, writer and filmmaker and was the first Anti-Discrimination Commissioner for Tasmania. She is also the author of several works on women in the workplace. Dr Scutt will address three questions: 1. Why is workplace mobbing different to workplace bullying? 2. What creates an environment where workplace mobbing occurs? 3. Is there a link between organisational change and workplace mobbing? The seminar is part of the Office for Women’s Policy’s Women in the Workplace series, and is recommended to policy makers, academics, employers, women working in employment and training, people in equal employment opportunity, union industrial officers and delegates and women and men looking for career inspiration.
