Diversity Leadership Program in Brisbane
DCA Chair David Morrison AO and CEO Lisa Annese presented DCA’s work on myth-busting sexual harassment at work in Brisbane.
According to the Australian Human Rights Commission, in the last 12 months, 23% of women and 16% of men have experienced sexual harassment at work in Australia.
To assist our member organisations, DCA developed a myth-buster guide that challenges the common myths and misconceptions which have allowed these sexual harassment statistics to rise, despite the #MeToo movement.
This event explored the myths like: ‘It’s just a joke’, ‘Boys will be boys’ and ‘It’s a compliment’ and provided the framework for action so that employees and workplaces can stand up for safety and respect at work.
A question and answer session followed the presentation.
