Time Published 11 October 2021

Join the next panel discussions via Zoom organised and facilitated by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC).

The free session on the topic of Bullying in the Workplace will be held on 20 October 2021 at 5pm – 6pm.

This session will potentially cover the following items:

  • Is there a common understanding of what constitutes bullying?
  • Bullying or harassment – is there a difference?
  • Is it bullying by colleagues, members, public?
  • How does it happen? Face-to-face, social media, etc?
  • How does it make you feel?
  • How to deal with bullying?
  • What can you do?
  • How and where to raise the issue?
  • Should you keep a diary of incidents in order to build up a case?

The next and final session on the topic of Your Resilience/Wellbeing will be held on Wednesday 27 October 2021 at 5pm.

Key to this session will be listening to peoples’ experiences about how they are coping (or not) from the global pandemic and exploring what you could do or should not do. Further information on this will be shared with participants before each session.
