Take action on sexual harassment in the workplace
Sexual harassment is a societal issue and no organisation or workplace is immune. What we have been doing in the past has not been working. As leaders committed to accelerating gender equality in our organisations we know that we can use organisational systems to eradicate sexual harassment and it requires significant shifts.
The Champions of Change Coalition is committed to identifying and sharing practical actions that leaders can take to improve gender equality in their organisations and in our society. Our approach is to Listen, Learn and Lead through action. We focus on understanding the facts, relevant research and importantly what has and hasn’t worked so we can take practical action to accelerate the pace of change.
We acknowledge the extensive research on the topic of sexual harassment by experts globally. We have paid particular attention to the landmark report, [email protected], arising from the National Inquiry into Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces (National Inquiry) led by the Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins. With reference to this, we have sought to bring a CEO lens and the everyday experiences of employees across our Coalition to provide another layer of insight and compelling roadmap for action.
