The Australian Human Rights Commission’s (AHRC) independent inquiry into workplace sexual harassment, led by Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins, is a world first.
It has the potential to take the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements from hashtags to HR gospel.
In this episode, Commissioner Jenkins goes on the record alongside Australia’s other leading voice on the issue – journalist and advocate Tracey Spicer.
Neither woman pulls punches when discussing how we can finally end the scourge of sexual harassment – and rebuild the structures that have supported it.
