Join us for a special screening of ‘Night Shift’ and panel discussion about issues affecting the working life of women, with guest panellists Terina Cowan (Ministry of Pacific People), Fiona McNamara (Sexual Abuse Prevention Network), and Jess Stuart (author, coach, and organiser of ‘Women Supporting Women’ event).

Our speakers have professional backgrounds that address sexual harassment, pay inequality, racial and cultural conflicts, and bullying in the workplace. Everyone is welcome to take part in this open conversation addressing common themes for women in the workplace, and discuss how we can collectively work together to create greater equity, equality, and support for one another in our daily working lives.

‘Night Shift’ is an award-winning 2012 NZ short film directed by Zia Mandviwalla that featured in the Cannes Short Film Competition, Sydney Film Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival, and the New York Film Festival. This special screening is made possible thanks to the New Zealand Film Commission.

Film screening at 6.30pm followed by the panel discussion at 6.45pm. Please feel free to join us from 6pm for drinks and nibbles before the event.
