Leading a sector-wide action plan for safe workplaces

Presentation Description

Presentation and Q&A

In recent years there has been a significant national effort to shift to a prevention-based approach to addressing sexual harassment in the workplace. The Australian Human Rights Commission has led the National Inquiry into Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces and released their report, Respect@Work, in March 2020. The recommendations from this report set out a new framework that is focussed on creating a culture of prevention and a network of support for victims in all levels of the organisation.

Kate Jenkins, Sex Discrimination Commissioner, has called for each industry to lead their own response to the Respect@Work report and set a new precedent for safe workplaces across Australia. Kate will share her perspective and guidance in developing industry-led initiatives to promote safe workplaces and build on the work of the National Inquiry.
