Callout for testimonials
In recent weeks, news headlines are full of stories about sexism and harassment in the workplace. RankandFile.ca is seeking testimonials of workers and the unemployed who have experienced sexism. We would like to bring these issues to light through publication on RankandFile.ca’s website in an effort to educate workers about sexism and harassment, and how we can fight it together.
Please contact Samantha Ponting at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a story you would like to share with us. If you wish to stay anonymous or have other concerns, please let us know. The deadline for submissions is Nov. 30.
