Webinar: A Woman’s Place is working.

The Gender Recognition Reform Bill is currently being considered by the Scottish Parliament, we discuss its impact in the workplace. #WPUKisworking.

Our panellists discuss the implications for women with a focus on the workplace as well as service provision.

What effect does self-identification of sex have on sex discrimination and sex discrimination law?

On quotas, parity schemes, prizes and role modelling?

On service users, on the freedom to speak up at work and academic freedom?
