Free webinar: Sexual Harassment at Work: Training Staff to Avoid Incidents

July 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEST

How do employers comply with the positive duty to prevent sexual harassment and discrimination?

  • Nine Media (twice)
  • Country Road
  • Rio Tinto
  • National Parliament
  • Local Government

I could happen to any organisation.

Clearly, the threats of penalties and dismissal, and training on the letter of the law, are just not effective to prevent incidents.

They are not sufficient to satisfy the positive duty test.

In this webinar two experienced managers and teachers will discuss how training will be much more effective if it takes a positive approach towards building a workplace where respect and diversity are core values.

  • How should that training be structured?
  • What format should the training be in?
  • Who should deliver it, and how often?
  • Who should be trained? Who needs to champion the training?
  • What are the underlying assumptions that can make it hard for even the best people to ‘get’ this subject matter?

The webinar will focus on these questions and will include practical insights from our presenters’ own experiences.

Free Webinar 17 July 2024

  • 1PM AEST
  • Duration 1 hour
