Event Recap: A Conversation About Your Rights At Work
On the evening of Wednesday, January 22, 50 models gathered at the law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan in New York City to learn about their rights at work.
The Model Alliance's packed workshop featured model and activist Ambra Guttierez, attorneys Manisha Sheth and Christopher Kercher, and Deputy Commissioner of the NYC Commission on Human Rights, Dana Sussman. Moderated by Model Alliance Founder and Executive Director Sara Ziff, the discussion covered two broad topics: sexual harassment in the modeling industry and economic concerns that we have seen confronting models, as well as what models can do when they experience those issues.
