How do you ensure a safe & respectful workplace?
Everyone has the right to feel safe at work. Yet, not all workplaces are safe.

  In Australia, nearly two in five women and one in four men have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. Additionally, two in three employees have experienced bullying at work.
Workplaces have a clear responsibility to protect their employees from bullying and harassment but to do so effectively, requires a shift from reactive approaches that put the burden on individuals to proactive and preventative measures all workplaces can, and should, take.
The Preventing Workplace Harassment & Bullying in Public & Private Sector Organisations conference will dig deep into the pressing issues facing Australian workplaces and provide much needed clarity on what your legal, ethical and moral obligations are as a workplace, and as a leader. You will gain valuable insights and practical advice to help your workplace overcome the often missing link between what’s written in policy and procedure, and how it translates into practice.
