As part of the UCL Women's Liberation Special Interest Group's International Women's Day celebrations, this seminar will explore what universities can learn from the Phoenix Employment Tribunal Judgement, which found that Jo Phoenix was discriminated against, harassed, and wrongfully constructively dismissed by the Open University because of her gender-critical beliefs.
Sonia Sodha will host the conversation.
There will be an opportunity for socialising and networking before and after the event. Doors open at 5pm.
This in-person event will be particularly useful for those interested in equality, diversity and inclusion.
