The panel incorporated their valuable insights on the topics of sexual harassment at work and the preventive measures that can be put in place to build safe work cultures. These successful ladies not only shared their insight but also their experiences, and more to add on to the enlightening session.
Bombshell starring Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman is based upon the accounts of several women at Fox News who set out to expose CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment, that inspired a revolutionary awakening across the globe.
Ms. Sairee – Founder, CEO of SHEROES commented, “The film has triggered a much-needed conversation around workplaces that are safe, inclusive, diverse, and these values must span across remote work, the gig economy and contract workers. Safe work cultures percolate from the top. If those at the top of the corporate hierarchy imbibe the values, the rest follows.”
The much-awaited film released in India on Friday 3rd of January 2020.
