HOW IT'S REVEALED, HOW IT'S REPORTED AND HOW DID IT COME TO THIS?

In the wake of  allegations against Weinstein, Trump, the Presidents Club and MPs, claims of sexual harassment of women within business and organisations are being reported on a daily basis. City, University of London has invited leading experts to discuss these very current issues and subsequent reporting by the media.

- Why is the harassment of women still an issue within business and industry and why is it making the headlines now?

- Why was the Weinstein story reported when it was (and not before)?

- How does the press react to scandals involving the harassment of women?

- Where do we go from here?

Confirmed panel:

Madison Marriage - journalist at the Financial Times, where she has been covering corporate tax and accounting since 2017. Madison recently  went undercover as a hostess at the  all-male Presidents Club charity dinner at London's Dorchester Hotel. Previously she wrote about the global asset management industry. Madison joined the FT in 2012 from Incisive Media where she worked on two investment titles.

Professor Chris Greer - Criminologist with expertise in organisational scandal. Professor Greer recently presented a BBC Radio 4 documentary The Scandal Machine where he traces the evolution of scandals involving high-profile public figures and how the media report them.

Professor Heather Brooke - Investigative Journalist who helped expose the 2009 MP expenses scandal. Professor Brooke is the author of Your Right to Know (2006), The Silent State (2010), and The Revolution Will Be Digitised (2011).

We are delighted to welcome back our chair for the evening Professor Lis Howell, Director of Broadcasting at City and expert and researcher on women in broadcasting.

This event will be followed by a reception for all guests.

This event forms part of City, University of London's International Women's Day activities. International Women's Day is a global day that takes place on the 8th of March each year, celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
