Over the last five years, Australia has seen a cultural reckoning. From the #MeToo movement to the rise of women independents in this year’s federal election, the call for gender equality has only grown louder.
Amongst powerful rallies, petitions, and summits, one fundamental driver of the national conversation continues to be the Respect@Work: Sexual Harassment National Inquiry Report. The landmark report made 55 recommendations to prevent and address workplace sexual harassment across all workplaces.
And now that the Respect@Work Bill is law, the onus is on employers to proactively prevent sexual harassment and create a safe workplace culture.
But what does this all really mean for organisations?
In this essential session, we help you understand the significance of the Report, the implications of the imminent legislation, and how your organisation can stay ahead of the curve in meeting its new obligations.
Future Women’s Head of Research and Insights, Ruby Leahy Gatfield delivers a short presentation, before our distinguished panel of experts unpack the new legislation in conversation with gender equality advocate and Diversity and Inclusion Director, Tarang Chawla.
