Trans Advocates Training: workplace bullying and what can be done about it

We are planning a training day for trans advocates and peer support workers in Wellington this September, who volunteer for Gender Minorities Aotearoa or are interested in getting involved.

We will be hosting speakers from the Human Rights Review Tribunal and the Human Rights Commission, to discuss workplace bullying and harassment and discrimination in the workplace. There may also be other speakers, and other topics discussed.

Attendees will learn about the differences between workplace bullying cases that can be taken to the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Enterprise (MBIE), and discrimination and harassment in the workplace which can be taken to the Human Rights Commission, and to the the Human Rights Review Tribunal.

We will learn about ”feeling pushed out” of the workplace – constructive dismissal – and whether it comes under human rights legislation, or employment rights legislation.

Spaces will be limited. To express your interest in attending, please send us your details using this form during July, and we will get back to you during August.

As this is a peer support and peer advocates training, we welcome expressions of interest from trans, intersex, and takataapui gender diverse people, including non-binary trans people.
