ILA and Kelp HR: The PoSH Foundation Series Webinar on “What Topics to Cover in a POSH awareness Session?”
On December 12, ILA was proud to partner with KelpHR yet again and present a panel discussion on the topic of “What Topics to Cover in a PoSH awareness Session?”
The focus of this session was to answer some of the common questions that people may be too afraid to ask. Often, employees have questions about Sexual Harassment, and they are either too awkward, unaware, or afraid to speak about them. ILA and KelpHR jointly organized this session to speak to employers and employees, about the importance of this requisite training.
The session with panelists Mr. Vasudevan V, Ms. Punitha Sathya, and Ms. Jyoti Grover had participation from more than 40 law enthusiasts, who also shared their experiences on this topic.
