Diversity Leadership Program in Brisbane
Time: 3:15pm to 5:00pm
Commonwealth Bank, Level 22, 180 Ann Street,
Join DCA Chair David Morrison AO and CEO Lisa Annese in Brisbane* for a presentation of DCA’s work on myth-busting sexual harassment at work.
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 will explore these myths like: ‘It’s just a joke’, ‘Boys will be boys’ and ‘It’s a compliment’. More importantly, it will provide the framework for action so that employees and workplaces can stand up for safety and respect at work.
A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
*This event is for in-person attendance in Brisbane only. DCA will look to repeat the event with a livestream option in the future.
