Equality and the new gender politics
Diversity is good for business. More women at work benefits the economy. A society that places a high value on equal treatment attracts investment and talent. We recognise that these are principles which make Ireland one of the best places in the world in which to do business and we want to live in a society that promotes inclusion.
This year's focus was on equality in the Irish workplace - what it means, what is required for legal compliance and the consequences of failing to meet the necessary standard. At this year’s conference, Ibec solicitors explored recent case law on sexual harassment with a particular emphasis on best practice in the conduct of workplace investigations.
