Surely it can’t be…
I’m hosting the second annual Neon Shed Summit, which provides a holistic view of lived experience with some courageous individuals and absolute rock stars.
I can’t find any past event that has done this! I’ve found Lived Experience Summits on:
- mental health
- prevention of suicide
But none on the lived experience of bullying and sexual harassment at work – is this Summit really a world first?
Please share if you know of something I’ve missed – multiple web browsers and months of searching has found nothing…
Why focus on Lived Experience?
The Lived Experience Summit focuses on the issue the perspective of everyone involved, to shed light on the issue and bring solutions to make real change.
You’ll hear from:
- targets and survivors
- injured workers in the workers comp system
- rehab providers
- casualties of moral injury
- and reformed bullies themselves.
Yes – you read that right.
There will be individuals who have conducted bullying behaviour in the past, courageous enough to talk about the how, why and what enabled them to transform, plus the immense benefits they’ve seen personally and professionally from doing so.
Bringing light to these issues helps to:
- improve your workplace culture
- create psychological safety
- empower your team to take responsibility for their actions
- reduce miscommunication, misunderstanding and conflict that lead to bullying and harassment
- reduce workers compensation claims
- improve the system and the way workers are treated
- transform and rehabilitate people that use bullying behaviours.
The Summit will launch during the last week of October as part of Safe Work Australia‘s Safe Work Month and Mental Health Month.
If you can’t wait until then, check out the Dark Sides of Work Summit, with over 30 sought after speakers that bring light and solutions to common workplace problems.
