Behind the Gown

Behind the Gown was founded in 2017 at the height of the global #MeToo movement.

Where imbalances of power exist, bullying and harassment can thrive. All too often fear inhibits these behaviours being challenged.

We shine a light on conduct which threatens equality. Behind the Gown seeks to reveal and uncover — a means of holding power to account.

Briefed & George's Law Campaign - Baby Loss Awareness Week

As its Baby Loss Awareness Week commencing on the 9th of October, we want to address this heartbreaking topic which can be often overlooked.

Briefed, who specialise in bar-specific eLearning courses have developed free Workplace Pregnancy Loss Training to help educate co-workers, managers, and HR leaders on the steps they can take to help their organisation become more supportive for grieving parents.

They’ve joined up with leading solicitor Keeley Lengthorn, who is one of the country’s main campaigners and experts in this area.  

Keeley, a partner in Family Law at Taylor Rose MW Solicitors, has suffered the heartbreak of losing three children in the space of three years and she’s now trying to turn that tragedy into a positive by fighting to enact George’s Law, which would see employees given 3 days paid time off to recover following the loss of a baby under 24 weeks.

If you think your organisation could use this free training or you’d like more information, head over to the Briefed website here
