Flexibile Working with PiPA

Flexible Working with PiPA

2.30 to 4.00pm

Join Parents & Carers in Performing Arts (PiPA), in conversation with Hannah Gagen to find out more flexible working.

Webinar outline:

The new SOLT/ Equity agreement goes beyond statutory rights, by enshrining a right to request flexible working from day one of employment.  

The aim of this webinar is to encourage and support performing arts organisations to embrace this right as an opportunity to increase diversity and build organisational resilience. 

Valuable insights will be shared from Parents and carers in Performing Arts’ research into the workforce and we will share practical examples of family friendly working practices that are already having an impact in different organisations in the industry.

  • You will be in front of your own PC.
  • You will wear headphones or have your speakers turned on. Please test these in good time before the Webinar starts whilst logged into Zoom. 
  • You will see slides and hear the panel, but not see them.
