This webinar will discuss how to prevent, mitigate, and/or solve bullying in the cultural industry and in all organisations in general

In this one hour interactive webinar, the speakers will discuss their research on bullying.

Sam will address strategies to prevent bullying, including work that shows how bullying can be mitigated by organizational climates that support conflict resolution.

Alex will share the first ever piece of research on bullying in the museums sector in the UK, which she initiated in 2019 in collaboration with the Museums Association. Her work, Sticks and Stones , is a project that emerged from personal experience, a recognition of the destructive impact of bullying in the sector, and a desire to make institutional change in a sector that should be about care (for objects, audiences and staff).
