In his opening remarks at this week’s long awaited women’s safety summit, the Prime Minister acknowledged the uncomfortable truth that women are not safe at work in Australia, not even at his place of work, Parliament House.  It’s a truth that was laid bare in granular detail in the landmark Respect@Work Report authored by Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins.

The Respect@work report found workplace sexual harassment in Australian workplaces is both prevalent and pervasive, and that the current legal and regulatory system is insufficient to effectively deal with it

In 1984, the Australian Government introduced the Sex Discrimination Act 1984, which specifically prohibited sexual harassment at work and established the role of Australia’s Sex Discrimination Commissioner. Since that time, successive Sex Discrimination Commissioners have identified the elimination of workplace sexual harassment as a key priority.

The 2018 National Survey revealed, almost two in five women (39%) and just over one in four men (26%) have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace in the past five years. The survey identified a number of different types of sexually harassing behaviour, the two most commonly reported types of behaviour were sexually suggestive comments or jokes and intrusive questions about private life or physical appearance.

The program is facilitated by Phil O’Brien, (more details here) a highly skilled and experienced workplace investigator and trainer.  You can check out and please connect to Phil’s LinkedIn profile here. The advantages of having Phil deliver the program for you are;
