”Let’s talk about two topical, if neglected, issues: sexual harassment and ageism”
JEFF HEARN, Senior Professor, Gender Studies, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Author of “Sex” at “Work” and Gender, Sexuality and Violence in Organisations.

In this session, I will introduce a discussion on this topical, if neglected, issue along with another neglected issue that may not seem so topical, but should be, especially with the University’s push to develop research on ageing, namely the pervasive question of (double) ageism?
