A number of interventions are needed to guard against a culture of silence.

Encouraging empathy in your organisation

The Covid-19 pandemic and related lockdowns around the globe has put a spotlight on the need for empathy. Many have been able to display great empathy, while others have been struggling. I suspect that those organisations that have typically been bottom line driven, would have found it a lot more difficult to deal with the levels of empathy required in dealing with employees who suddenly had to go into a mini diaspora, while dealing with the inevitable bereavement that accompanied the virus as it wreaked havoc.

  1. The Johannesburg Bar (in fact all GCB Constituent Bars) of which I have been a member for many years and served as Chair of its Ethics Committee, Transformation Committee & Bar Council, need this talk. I’ve heard of women who’ve been victimised by men but won’t come forward for fear of further victimisation. It seems endemic.
    But the people you need to talk to is not the Bar but the women in it.
