Share your experiences: National inquiry into sexual harassment in Australian workplaces

Have you experienced sexual harassment in the workplace? Or do you deal with sexual harassment issues through your work? You can help shape the national conversation about sexual harassment at work and appropriate responses from employers through the National inquiry into sexual harassment in Australian workplaces.

 Everyones Business.COLOUR

During November, the Australian Human Rights Commission will be conducting public consultation sessions in Victoria with individuals, advocates and organisations that deal with sexual harassment complaints.

There are sessions open to workers from all industries and backgrounds, as well as tailored sessions for young people, LGBTI people and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. 

Your views, experiences and suggestions for change will help the Australian Human Rights Commission further develop its understanding of workplace sexual harassment, its causes, impacts and best practice responses.

We will be co-hosting sessions with the Australian Human Rights Commission, as will Victoria Legal Aid and the Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality.

If you have an experience to share, please join us for one of the sessions (registration links below), or you can make a submission online.
