Australia has one of the highest reported rates of sexual harassment in the world. Over 30% of Australian lawyers* reported that they had been sexually harassed in the workplace.
Sexual harassment is commonplace – 1 in 3 australian workers had experienced sexual harassment in the last 5 years in 2018**, this has increased from 1 in 5 in 2012. Fewer than 1 in 5 people (17%) make a complaint.
In this on demand webinar I provide tools and strategies for:
- Employers to meet their obligations and manage the risks
- Managers to know what to do if it happens in their team
- Targets to know what to do and take back their right to a safe workplace

I also provide a Courage Continuum© which gives a variety of content and actions that you can do or say during or after a sexual harassment incident, depending on your level of confidence at the time.
